Phillies activate Lidge

 Right-hander Brad Lidge was activated from the disabled list Friday.  To make room for him on the 25-man roster, right-hander Danys Baez was designated for assignment. 

 Lidge, 34, has missed the entire season due to a right posterior rotator cuff strain suffered in spring training.  He was originally placed on the disabled list on March 25.  Over an eight-game rehabilitation stint between single-A Lakewood and double-A Reading, Lidge went 0-0 with a 3.52 ERA, two walks and 10 strikeouts in 7.2 innings.  For his career with the Phillies (2008-10), Lidge has gone 3-9 with 99 saves and a 3.99 ERA in 189 games.

 Baez, 33, was 2-4 with a 6.25 ERA in 29 appearances this season.  He went 5-8 with a 5.81 ERA in 80 games in his two seasons with the Phillies (2010-11).
