After spending most of the later part of the Phillies season riding the pine, Dom Brown was sent to the Domonican League to try to get some much needed work in during winter ball. That project didn't exactly go so well for the young prospect who many expect to be Jayson Werth's heir apparent in right field — if not this coming season, than perhaps next.
Brown's stint in the Domonican was not a productive one. The toolsy slugger hit an awful 2 for 29 in nine games for Escogido and it was reported today that he has been sent back to the States to rest up.
A Phillies spokesman told CSN's Jim Salisbury that Brown was "tired and sluggish," but he's healthy. The move was made to ensure the right fielder is ready for spring training.
Hopefully it's just a young kid who needed a break from the everyday grind of playing baseball.
