Domonic Brown LF PHI 2 Days

Brown is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Mariners, Ryan Lawrence of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

Now out of the lineup for the fourth time in six games, it seems Brown has now become a part-time player for the Phillies. He could still see close to everyday duty against right-handers, but look for Darin Ruf to pick up more at-bats against lefties so as not to further deflate Brown's confidence. His OPS is over 200 points lower from a year ago, when he slugged 27 homers and plated 83 runs.

Brown is out of the lineup Monday, The Morning Call's Stephen Gross reports.

His play hasn't dictated everyday playing time this season, but he'll be available off the bench. Darin Ruf will get the start in left field against the Mariners.

Brown is out of the lineup Sunday against the Giants, Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports.

Brown had been losing playing time of late to Darin Ruf, but Grady Sizemore will take over in left field Sunday afternoon. Brown has seen his playing time reduced against left-handed starters, but his absence Sunday is a bit questionable, as the Phillies are squaring off against righty Tim Lincecum. It seems likely that Brown will no longer be guaranteed consistent playing time during the final month of the season.

Brown is out of the lineup Friday against the Phillies, Ryan Lawrence of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

Brown is out of the lineup Monday against the Mets.

Brown will sit for Monday's afternoon game following two starts over the weekend. He had a bout with tonsillitis that that kept him out of the lineup for over a week, but there is no indication Monday's absence is related to that. Darin Ruf will start in left field and bat sixth for the Phillies.

Brown went 0-for-4 with a walk Saturday night after returning to the starting lineup following an absence due to illness.

The disappointing season for Brown continues, as the 0-fer on Saturday night dropped his season line to .226/.277/.331. Barring a turnaround during the final seven weeks of the regular season, Brown will face an uphill battle to have a regular place in the lineup for the Phillies in 2015.

Brown (illness) is back in the Phillies' lineup Saturday against the Mets, Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com reports.

Brown will slot into the lineup Saturday for the first time since June 29 to take on Dillon Gee, against whom he's 5-for-18 (.278 average) with a double in his career. A bout of tonsillitis was the reason for his long absence, but Brown was able to return to pinch-hit duties in recent days and he deemed himself "pretty much 100 percent" Friday. The 26-year-old is batting just .228/.278/.335 on the season.

Brown said he is over his recent case of tonsillitis and is "pretty much 100 percent" healthy, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Brown was out of the starting lineup for the ninth straight game Friday. Manager Ryne Sandberg said he did not want to mess with his lineup with the Phillies having won three straight going into Friday's game. Brown will have a difficult time getting into the lineup with regularity as long as the Phillies' other outfielders continue to play well.

Brown (illness) is out of the lineup again Friday against the Mets, Ryan Lawrence of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

Brown hasn't played in over a week because of the illness, but appears to be nearing a return to the lineup. He said he will wait until the offseason to get his tonsils removed, but he has now missed a good amount of time due to throat infections caused by the tonsils.

Brown (illness) remains out of the Phillies' lineup Thursday against the Astros, Stephen Gross of the Morning Call reports.

Brown has been able to come off the bench the past two days, but apparently he's still not at full strength, as he's set to miss an eighth straight start Thursday. The 26-year-old will likely need to have his tonsils removed, but he's expected to wait until after the season to undergo the procedure.
