TORONTO — Just when Domonic Brown was reentering the collective consciousness of Philadelphia, the erstwhile top prospect suffered another knee injury Thursday.

The Phillies have diagnosed Brown with right knee inflammation but that was before he underwent an MRI on Friday afternoon, assistant general manager Scott Proefrock said. The results were not immediately available.

It comes at an inopportune time for Brown, who was finally finding his stroke at triple-A Lehigh Valley while playing regularly. Brown was hitting .300 in 11 June games with three home runs and a .939 OPS.

But injuries have long affected his path to the majors. Last month, he was hampered by a lingering left hamstring injury. Brown was sidelined in spring training by thumb and neck injuries. He fractured the hook of the hamate bone last spring that cost him most of Grapefruit League play.
