News: Brown said he's trying to adjust to not being an everyday player, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "It's difficult to get into a rhythm when you are not playing every day, but I am taking what they give me and making sure I am ready to go," he said. Impact: Brown has started just 23 games in July and August, first losing playing time to Grady Sizemore and now splitting time in left with Darin Ruf. It looks like the Phillies will give Brown the majority of the starts against right handed pitching moving forward while Ruf will start against lefties. Brown has been a disappointment this year with just seven home runs after hitting 27 last season.(RotoWire, )

News: Brown is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Mariners, Ryan Lawrence of the Philadelphia Daily News reports. Impact: Now out of the lineup for the fourth time in six games, it seems Brown has now become a part-time player for the Phillies. He could still see close to everyday duty against right-handers, but look for Darin Ruf to pick up more at-bats against lefties so as not to further deflate Brown's confidence. His OPS is over 200 points lower from a year ago, when he slugged 27 homers and plated 83 runs.(RotoWire, )

News: Brown is out of the lineup Monday, The Morning Call's Stephen Gross reports. Impact: His play hasn't dictated everyday playing time this season, but he'll be available off the bench. Darin Ruf will get the start in left field against the Mariners.(RotoWire, )

News: Brown is out of the lineup Sunday against the Giants, Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports. Impact: Brown had been losing playing time of late to Darin Ruf, but Grady Sizemore will take over in left field Sunday afternoon. Brown has seen his playing time reduced against left-handed starters, but his absence Sunday is a bit questionable, as the Phillies are squaring off against righty Tim Lincecum. It seems likely that Brown will no longer be guaranteed consistent playing time during the final month of the season.(RotoWire, )

News: Brown is out of the lineup Friday against the Phillies, Ryan Lawrence of the Philadelphia Daily News reports. Impact: Brown is coming off a 1-for-4 performance Wednesday with an RBI, but will sit Friday with the left-handed Madison Bumgarner on the mound for the Giants. Darin Ruf will start in left field and bat seventh for the Phillies in his place.(RotoWire, )
