Remember that top prospect for the Philadelphia Phillies a handful of years ago who was suppose to be the next big star in the big leagues?
That man was outfielder Domonic Brown, and after an All-Star season in 2013, it looked like it was all coming together. As we know now, that never happened and he faded from our memory.
Well, he's getting another opportunity after signing a minor league deal with the Colorado Rockies.

Brown, 29, didn't appear in the big leagues in 2016 and spent the entire year with Triple-A Buffalo of the Toronto Blue Jays organization. In 126 games, Brown slashed .239/.303/.336 with seven home runs and 41 RBI.

Brown is a far cry from his 2013 campaign where he belted 27 home runs and posted an .818 OPS. There's no better place to turn your offensive numbers around than Colorado, but the problem is it's unlikely that he'll make the team out of Spring Training.
