According to various sources, including the Inky’s Matt Gelb, the Phillies are calling up top prospect Domonic Brown for tonight’s game at home against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Brown will wear #9. It’s unclear as to whether he’ll start the game or not.
This is the corresponding move to Shane Victorino being placed on the disabled list with a left oblique strain.
Fans have been waiting for this day for a long time, and it’s absolutely thrilling to see this highly touted player make his debut. We’re hoping for the best for him. More importantly, we’re hoping to see him add to a very talented lineup that needs an injection of youth in the homestretch of the 2010 season.
More news at it comes to us.
UPDATE 3:50pm - According to Ryan Lawrence of the Delaware County Times, Brown will be starting and batting sixth.
