The Phillies activated outfielder Laynce Nix on Sunday morning following a two-game stint at triple-A Lehigh Valley to rehab a strained left calf. Nix also played in six games for single-A Clearwater.
He has been on the disabled list since May 10 with the injury. Nix was hitting .326 with eight extra-base hits in 51 plate appearances before going down. He adds a lefthanded power bat to Charlie Manuel's bench.
To make space, Jason Pridie was designated for assignment. Pridie had options remaining, so he could have to triple A without passing through waivers, but the Phillies opted for the extra space on the 40-man roster.
That roster is now at 39.
