Brown was 4-for-5 with a home run and a double in the Phillies' loss to the Mets on Sunday.

Brown said he is trying to adjust to not being an every day player, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "It's difficult to get into a rhythm when you are not playing every day, but I am taking what they give me and making sure I am ready to go," Brown said.

Brown has started just 23 games in July and August, first losing playing time to Grady Sizemore and now splitting time in left with Darin Ruf. It looks like the Phillies will give Brown the majority of the starts against right handed pitching moving forward while Ruf will start against lefties. Brown has been a disappointment this year with just seven home runs after hitting 27 last season.

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 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.
