Phils' Brown out with hamate fracture

CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Domonic Brown's tough spring just got a whole lot worse.

The young Phillies outfielder, struggling at the plate in his attempt to take Jayson Werth's vacated job in right field, broke the hamate bone in his right hand on a swing in the Phillies' 4-3 spring loss to the Pirates Saturday.

General manager Ruben Amaro said that Brown will be reevaluated next week, but that surgery is likely. The recovery time for surgery is 3-6 weeks, which means Brown would miss most of the remainder of spring training and possibly the start of the regular season, as well.

Brown was hitless in 15 at-bats this spring before Saturday. He apparently broke the bone on his first swing of the day, but continued the at-bat and got his first hit. He came out of the game at that point, and was taken for X-rays.

"I'm sure he's disappointed," Amaro said. "But it's part of the game."

Ben Francisco, the other main contender for the right field job, had two more hits Saturday and is hitting .421 in seven games this spring.

Blitzylvania, I appreciate your optimism. But how many games do you see that starting eight being on the field?
I'm wagering around 2/3's of the season, barring any long-term injuries.

The Phillies have capable bench players with Valdez and Gload, so I'm not too worried.
