PHILADELPHIA (AP)—The Philadelphia Phillies have activated All-Star second
baseman Chase Utley(notes) from the disabled list, less than seven weeks after he had
thumb surgery.

Utley tore a ligament in his thumb sliding into second base in a game at
Cincinnati on June 28. He had surgery on July 1 and was expected to miss at
least eight weeks. But he’s expected to be in the lineup for the start of a
three-game series against San Francisco on Tuesday night.

To make room for Utley, infielder/outfielder Greg Dobbs(notes) was designated for
assignment. Dobbs was hitting .191 with four homers and 14 RBIs in 76 games.

Utley is batting .277 with 11 homers and 37 RBIs.
