Victorino nearing his return

Enforcements are on the way.

Shane Victorino, after going 1-for-2 in his Lehigh Valley debut last night, hit a triple in his first at bat for the Iron Pigs tonight. He encored by hitting a home run in his second at bat.

Victorino appears to be ready for his return to the Phillies. It will be interesting to see what the Phillies do with Domonic Brown.

He can certainly help this team off the bench and getting the occasional start. But the organization would likely prefer Brown to be playing on an every day basis; the only opportunity for him to do so would be at Triple-A.

But, if the Phillies want to field the best possible team, Brown is more valuable than say a Greg Dobbs.

It will be great to have Vic' back on the big league club, but they may be losing a valuable asset in the process.
