The Phillies were reluctant to part with outfield prospect Domonic Brown in a deal for Roy Halladay at the trade deadline last year, and wound up getting Cliff Lee instead without having to part with Brown. (Of course, they eventually wound up with Halladay too, but that's a different story.)

Given the way Brown's offensive production has exploded this season, it's easy to see why the team was so hesitant to part with him. The 22-year-old outfielder hit .318 with 15 homers, 12 steals and a .993 OPS in 65 games at Double-A before being promoted recently. He hasn't missed a beat at Triple-A, hitting .364 with four homers in his first 15 games there.
