The Phillies on Tuesday activated outfielder Delmon Young from the 15-day disabled list.
To make room for Young on the roster, outfielder Ezequiel Carrera was designated for assignment.
Young, who had offseason surgery on his ankle, batted .367 with two doubles and two RBIs over seven rehab games with Single A Clearwater and Triple A Leigh Valley.
The 27-year-old was used primarily as a designated hitter for Detroit last season. In 151 games with the Tigers, Young hit .267 with 18 home runs and 74 RBIs.
Young and the Phillies agreed to a one-year contract worth $750,000 on Jan. 22. The deal can become worth as much as $3.5 million based on roster and performance bonuses.
Carrera has appeared in 13 games for the Phils this season. He has just one hit in 13 at-bats (.077) and two runs scored.
