ESPN does a weekly ranking of the best fantasy baseball prospects currently in the minors. After his torrid stretch at AAA Lehigh Valley, Phillies OF Domonic Brown has reappeared on their list. Brown hit .391 with 3 HRs and 4 RBI last week.â†µ
Here's what Kevin Goldstein had to say about Brown's resurgence.
Update: Once upon a time, Brown was one of the hottest fantasy prospects in the game, but since a disastrous showing in spring training 2011, he has been either hurt or strangely ineffective. Still just 24 years old, Brown remains an ultra-athletic outfielder, and his recent offensive surge is creating optimism for his future.â†µ
What he can do: Brown has 20-homer/20-steal potential, and while there's no room at the inn for him right now in Philadelphia, many other major league franchises see him as an excellent change-of-scenery candidate and would love to have him. His name could be heard plenty as the summer trade rumors heat up.
I'm not really sure why he feels there's "no room" for him in Philadelphia. The Phils have an ok at best platoon in left field with Juan Pierre and John Mayberry Jr. They've got Shane Victorino in the final year of his deal in center. Not only is there room for Brown, one could argue there's a big gaping hole for him.
