Philadelphia Phillies' All-Star outfielder Domonic Brown missed Wednesday's game and will miss today's game with concussion-like symptoms.
As reported by Todd Zolecki of MLB.com,
"Brown slammed into the turf trying to make a catch on Carlos
Beltran's triple in the seventh inning of Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the
Cardinals at Busch Stadium. He complained of dizziness after the game."
"It is standard protocol for a player to take a battery of tests to
determine if he has suffered a concussion. Brown took those tests
Wednesday and will learn the results Thursday, which means he cannot
play at the earliest until Friday against the Tigers."
Although Brown says he feels like he is back to normal and doesn't have a headache, if tests conclude he has a concussion he must be placed on the seven-day concussion disabled list.
The Phillies cannot afford to lose Brown for any length of time, as they are battling the Braves and Nationals in the National League East. It appears only the division winner will make the playoffs.
Brown is batting .271 with 24 home runs and 69 rbi's in 99 games this season.
