PLAYERS: Gary Sheffield

Domonic Brown worked on hitting with Gary Sheffield this offseason, and he seemed to impress the former all-star slugger.

"He's going to be one of the great ones," Sheffield said. "He's going to be. It's all about staying focused with him. He's a guy who wants to do great. If he can keep that same focus and intensity for 10 or 15 years, he's going to be a great one. It's all about the mental part. He seems to have it because he's a humble kid. He wants to learn."

 

If Brown can be half of what scouts and baseball experts thought he was going to be a few years ago, the Phillies are going to have a special player in the mix.
