On Friday, two players that could potentially provide some help to the big league Phillies roster this season were in action with the organization’s Gulf Coast League club, rehabbing their injuries. Right-handed reliever Justin De Fratus (elbow strain) and outfielder Domonic Brown (knee sprain) both looked good in their efforts down Florida.

De Fratus, who threw a scoreless frame for the GCL Phils on Friday while striking out two and allowing no baserunners, says that everything feels good and that he is slated to pitch again on Monday with the Class A Advanced Clearwater Threshers. De Fratus last pitched a scoreless inning on Tuesday, in his first official game action since April. At this stage, the 24-year-old is taking his progress on an appearance-by-appearance basis, as the Phillies plan to make sure each outing goes well, without any setbacks, before they make decisions on each subsequent appearance.

Additionally, Brown went 2-for-5 on Friday with two doubles and an RBI in the GCL Phillies’ 8-6 loss to the Braves. The 24-year-old is 10-for-16 (.625 batting average) with seven doubles and four RBI in four contests this week with the GCL club.

It’s unclear when Brown, who played in 47 games with the Triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs this season, prior to missing time with a knee sprain, might come back north, but it will likely occur in the coming days, barring any setbacks for the 6-foot-5-inch 205-pounder.

    No better time to find out if Brown can cut the mustard than by trading Victorino or Pence and letting him have at it.

    Why the rush with Domonic Brown? He has just put in some rehab and has played in only 47 games with the Triple A farm team this season. He is likely to see more time with Lehigh Valley Piggies. If healthy, he will get his chance with the Phillies in the September call-up when the roster is expanded.

      phils will be trading vic and Pierre so they’ll need some new blood out there in the OF. Brown when he’s healthy is as good a choice as anyone.

    I’d rather watch a young Brown misplay a fly all than Pence.
