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."

Brown has traveled with the team, but has not participated in baseball related activities.
