Bits: Domonic Brown keeps slugging

A week ago, Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown was really just a guy hitting for modest power, doing little else to notably ingratiate himself to fantasy owners. He was owned in roughly half of ESPN’s standard mixed leagues, and got some notice for winning NL Player of the Week honors the third week of May, when he hit .348 with two home runs and seven RBIs. Alas, he sure didn’t seem like a special player on the verge of greatness, and I watch him play every day. A week ago, he was just a guy hitting the occasional home run.
