(From a Phillies news release) - Center fielder Shane Victorino was placed on the 15-day disabled list with an abdominal strain on his left side. To take his spot on the 25-man roster, the Phillies selected the contract of outfielder Domonic Brown from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Brown, 22, has combined to hit .327 (112-for-343) with 46 extra-base hits, including 20 home runs and 68 RBI over 93 games for Reading and Lehigh Valley.
Brown will wear No. 9 and will be available for tonight's game against the Diamondbacks.
Beerleaguer: Reports are he will be in the starting lineup tonight and possibly start every night in right field until Victorino returns healthy. Exciting news; most exciting call-up since Cole Hamels.
