With a deal sending Shane Victorino to the Dodgers in return for middle reliever Josh Lindbloom and perhaps a prospect or two appearing likely to get done today, Dom Brown has been scratched from today's game with the Lehigh Valley IronPigs and appears headed to DC to join the Phillies.
While we'll all miss Shane, much more on that later, freeing Dom Brown will make the stretch run here a bit more interesting for Phillies fans.
Domonic Brown has been scratched from triple-A Lehigh Valley's lineup for noon game. He'll be coming up.
