ALLENTOWN — Domonic Brown's right knee was examined Tuesday, but his return to Triple-A Lehigh Valley is not imminent. Results of the evaluation weren't available Tuesday evening.

If went well, Brown is expected to begin baseball related activities Thursday with no timetable set for a return, IronPigs manager Ryne Sandberg said.

Brown's knee was inflamed June 14 and underwent a MRI June 15, but didn’t expect to be out more than 7-10 days.

"It's going a little slower than initially expected," Sandberg said. "We're being cautious from an organization standpoint. He’s doing well. He's getting closer."
