Philadelphia Phillies OF Domonic Brown (Achilles') will start the season on the disabled list with an Achilles' injury that has kept him out the last two weeks. Brown will be the designated hitter in a minor league game Tuesday, March 31, according to general manager Ruben Amaro Jr., and the Phillies are expecting Brown to miss more than just the opening week of the season. OFs Grady Sizemore, Jeff Francoeur, Jordan Danks and Darin Ruf are candidates to start in right field in place of Brown.
Fantasy Tip: Brown ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is a post-hype prospect that just hasn't put it together yet in Philly. He hit only .235 with 10 home runs and 63 RBI in 2014, meaning he probably wasn't on many fantasy owners' radars. Now that he's injury, he's not a candidate to be drafted in deep mixed leagues. Sizemore seems like the best bet to see the most playing time in Brown's absence, but Philadelphia could easily go with a platoon in right field, too.

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Phillies OF Domonic Brown (Achilles') had an MRI on his left Achilles' Friday, March 20. The test did not show any tears in his left Achilles', but he does have moderate tendinitis. It might be up to a week before he plays in a game again.
Fantasy Tip: The good news is that the injury does not sound like something which will cost him regular season time or a stint on the 15-day disabled list to start.

Philadelphia Phillies OF Domonic Brown (Achilles') left the game Thursday, March 19, and has dealt with soreness in his left Achilles' for the past two weeks. He'll be examined by the team doctor Friday, March 20, but the initial diagnosis is tendonitis.
Fantasy Tip: Brown ($3,500; 7.0% of your cap) has massively disappointed after a big first half in 2013. He's a low-end outfielder to round out your roster on FantasyScore.
