With nothing left to prove at Double-A, the Phillies’ top prospect has been promoted to the Phils’ Triple-A affiliate Lehigh Valley Ironpigs. Brown’s Double-A numbers were impressive.â†µ
Brown, the Phillies’ top minor-league prospect, has earned the promotion with a spectacular first half at Double-A Reading. In 65 games, the 22-year-old right fielder has batted .318 with 16 doubles, three triples, 15 home runs and 47 RBIs.â†µ
There’s a pretty good chance now that Brown will see the major leagues when the rosters expand Sept. 1.
