After the Phils traded Hunter Pence and Shane Victorino, the only constant in the new-look outfield was Domonic Brown. Whether in left or right, Brown was an everyday fixture in the lineup.

Until this weekend, at least.

Brown, who has been plagued with injuries in the last three years, was out of the lineup on Sunday while battling soreness in his knees. It was the second straight game Brown didn't start after making 24 starts in a row.

With Monday's day off in the Phillies schedule, Brown will get three full days to rest.Brown had previously dealt with a left knee injury at Triple A Lehigh Valley this summer.
