Phillies fans will not get a chance to use it a lot more come next Monday. Brown was not selected to participate in the Home Run Derby next Monday night at Citi Field by National League captain David Wright as part of the All-Star Game festivities. Brown was passed over for Nationals star Bryce Harper and Rockies sluggers Carlos Gonzalez and Michael Cuddyer.
Brown has been the Phillies best hitter this season. He is hitting a solid .281/.326/.560 with a team leading 23 home runs, 62 RBI, and 49 runs. His 23 home runs trail only Carlos Gonzalez's 24 in the National League. The 25 year old outfielder is headed to his first career All-Star Game next week along with teammate Cliff Lee.
