The Philadelphia Phillies activated outfielder Delmon Young from the 15-day disabled list and designated outfielder Ezequiel Carrera for assignment on Tuesday before opening a series in Cleveland.
Young was out while recovering from microfracuse surgery on his right ankle since signing with the Phillies in January. He's expected to work his way back into the lineup as a designated hitter and then take over as the Phillies' right fielder.
In seven rehab games with Class A Clearwater and Class AAA Lehigh Valley, Young hit .367 with two RBI.
Last year, Young batted .267 with 18 homers and 74 RBI in 151 games for the Detroit Tigers. The Phillies are his fourth team in eight years.
