Philadelphia Phillies OF Domonic Brown (back) is sitting out Thursday, April 18, after tweaking his back Wednesday, April 17. X-rays were negative, and he's hoping to return Friday, April 19.
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to check to see if Brown is indeed back in the lineup before confidently re-inserting him into your lineup.

Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere has been dropped from the leadoff spot to seventh, SS Jimmy Rollins has moved into the top spot, and INF Freddy Galvis is batting second on Thursday, April 18, against the St. Louis Cardinals. Manager Charlie Manuel is hoping to jump-start an offense that has scored only nine runs in its last five games. "I want to see if I can relax him a little bit and get him going," Manuel said. "To me, our lineup is never set. It's not that he's not going to be back in the leadoff spot some time or hitting second. … I think he has been pressing too much."
Galvis is filling in for OF Domonic Brown (back) in left field. The idea of having switch hitters in the top two positions appealed to Manuel. Galvis (.333) entered play on Thursday as one of only two Phils with averages above .300. The other is 3B Michael Young (.346).
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners should've expected the possibility of shakeups like this. Hopefully, the moves help to get Revere going. He should still opportunities to run -- as long as he gets on base -- since Manuel didn't drop to the eighth spot. It's not yet clear how serious Brown's injury is or whether the Phils would continue to play Galvin in left if Brown missed extended time. Delmon Young (ankle) may factor in here in the next couple of weeks.

Philadelphia Phillies OF Domonic Brown clubbed his sixth spring homer Tuesday, March 19, tying him for the major league lead. His slugging percentage sits at .714, and he's showing excellent power that could earn him the fifth spot in the lineup behind 1B Ryan Howard this year. Manager Charlie Manuel believes Brown can hit in that spot and be successful.
Fantasy Tip: Brown really worked on his mechanics at the plate in the offseason and has shown a much quieter swing and stance this spring. This post-hype prospect a buy-low candidate that could return some serious profit as a late-round investment.

Howard wants to get his "game legs" under him, and he's 4-for-6 against left-handers with two doubles.

Philadelphia Phillies OF Domonic Brown has been clicking with new assistant hitting coach Wally Joyner this spring. Both Brown and Joyner attended the same high school, and the two began working together in early February. Brown made changes to how he grips the bat; at times, he would wrap his hands and wrists around the bat. "We straightened his hands out a little bit, allowing his wrists to cock," Joyner said. "He's a big boy. He looks great. We want to take advantage of that size and leverage. That's one of the assets that Ryan Howard has. And he uses it. He has a lot of leverage. He stays behind it." The adjustments have been paying off for Brown so far in spring training.
