Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) - The Philadelphia Phillies activated
outfielder Delmon Young from the 15-day disabled list prior to Tuesday's game
against the Cleveland Indians.
Young signed a one-year contract with the Phillies over the winter after
helping the Detroit Tigers to a World Series appearance last season. He was
recovering from ankle surgery performed in November.
The former No. 1 overall pick is expected to be in the lineup Tuesday,
probably as the designated hitter.
In seven minor-league games, Young hit .367 with two RBI at Single-A
Clearwater and Triple-A Lehigh Valley. He batted .267 with 18 homers and 74
RBI in 151 games for the Tigers last season.
The Phillies paid Young a $250,000 bonus for being on the active roster. The
team also designated outfielder Ezequiel Carrera for assignment.
