Domonic Brown Injury: Phillies OF To Have MRI On Sprained Thumb

Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown will undergo an MRI on his sprained right thumb on Thursday (via CSN Philly).

Brown sprained the thumb while diving for a ball in Monday's Spring Training game against the New York Yankees. This is not the first injury to the thumb for Brown. He jammed it two years ago and broke the the hamate bone of his right hand last spring.

Phillies assistant general manager Scott Proefrock says the team is just being cautious by evaluating Brown.

"We don't think this is serious," Proefrock said. "But we want to take every precaution."

In 91 career games for the Phillies, Brown has hit .236 with 7 home runs, 32 RBI and 59 strikeouts. Brown's career fielding percentage is .955. Brown is 2-8 at the plate with a triple and a walk in Spring Training this season.
