Domonic Brown Called-Up By Phillies, Shane Victorino Heads To 15-Day DL

First, the bad news for the Phillies: Shane Victorino is headed to the disabled list, according to CSNPhilly's Jim Salisbury. Victorino left Wednesday's game in the seventh inning after injuring his left oblique while diving back to first base, and later made it worse fielding a fly ball a half-inning later. He was scheduled to undergo an MRI on Wednesday.

Now, for the good news: Victorino to the 15-day DL means the Phillies have a roster spot to fill ... which means that, yes: the Domonic Brown era is set to begin in Philadelphia.

Brown, the Phillies' uber-prospect (rated by some as the top prospect in the minor leagues), has been promoted to the big leagues.

In 28 games for Triple-A Lehigh Valley this season, the 22-year old Brown, a 2006 draft pick, has hit .346 with a .390 OBP and .951 OPS to go along with five home runs in 107 at-bats.

Brown is expected to start in right field Wednesday night, when the Phillies host the Diamondbacks.

Expect more reaction at The Good Phight.
