Third baseman Pedro Feliz has been on the disabled list since July 29 and is hoping to be activated Wednesday.
Feliz was hitting .256/.304/.424 with 12 HR before going on the DL with lower back inflammation, an injury he had been suffering through for weeks. Feliz took the field for Single-A Clearwater yesterday and went 0-for-3 with a walk. Reading hosts Trenton beginning at 7:05 ET tonight.
Beerleaguer: In the last three seasons, the Phillies overcame a fire sale and survived injuries to Chase Utley, Ryan Howard, Cole Hamels and Jimmy Rollins. Pete Happy goes on the DL and you really notice it. Go figure. Eric Bruntlett has been killing them since taking over most of the third base detail.
