Daily Futures: The NL East rises higher
Domonic Brown (PHI) and Julio Teheran (ATL) tear it up on Wednesday night

Here Comes The Power
Domonic Brown, OF, Philadelphia Phillies (Double-A Reading)
Wednesday's stats: 2-for-4, 2B, HR (4), 2 R, RBI
Unquestionably the top prospect in the Phillies' system, the 6-foot-5, 200-pound Brown was long thought by scouts to be close to a power surge. It hadn't yet happened on a consistent basis; Brown spent the first month of the year doing his usual act. He hit for average, doubles, and ran well, but so far in May, the power has arrived. He's hit three home runs in his last five games and is up to a whopping .358/.416/.701 for Reading. The Phillies will likely find a way to play him every day in 2011.
Ever heard of Julio Teheran? We hadn't either, until we edited this. Apparently he's the best pitcher in all of the minors, possibly. He's a Brave. (Figures.) For that and much more, grab this via Insider.
