Brown Set to Begin Rehab with Clearwater

Domonic Brown is nearly ready for a return.

A source close to Brown told PhoulBallz.com today that the Phillies top prospect will begin a rehab assignment on Wednesday with the High A Level Clearwater Threshers.

The 23-year-old has been out since early March with a broken hook of the hamate bone in his right hand. Brown underwent surgery to fix the problem on March 8.

Brown, a left-handed hitting outfielder, has been playing in extended spring training with the Phillies' club for the past week. In action on Tuesday, Brown posted 4 hits in 5 at bats, with 2 homeruns.

If Brown, is able to swiftly return to form, he could be an option for a struggling Phillies offense. The only question is; will the Phillies keep him in the minors or bring him back to the majors where he struggled late last season?
