Toronto Blue Jays sign Outfielder Domonic Brown to Minor-League Deal

The Toronto Blue Jays have signed former All-Star Domonic Brown to a minor-league deal, according to Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca.

The 28-year-old outfielder was a top Philadelphia Phillies prospect and had a fantastic 2013 season which saw him blast 27 home runs to the tune of a .272/.324/.494 slash line. 2014 was a less eventful year for Brown, as he had worse numbers in almost every offensive category, and was the cause of him spending 58 games in the minor leagues the following year. An injury infested 2015 saw his departure from Philadelphia inevitable.

Brown also received an invitation to Spring Training where he is expected to battle for the fourth outfield spot among Junior Lake, Ezequiel Carrera, and Dalton Pompey.

If he does not grab a spot on the Blue Jays 40-man roster, he’ll spend his time in the minors, and if he does get promoted back up to the big league level, it’ll likely be to provide depth for Toronto.
