The Phillies have activated Roy Oswalt from the disabled list and sent Vance Worley to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Oswalt, who has been out with a lower back strain, is scheduled to pitch Tuesday against the Cardinals. The move comes despite an unimpressive rehab appearance Thursday in Clearwater. Worley was 2-0 with a 1.12 ERA in four appearances, including two starts. Beerleaguer: Hmm. Worley seems like he should be in the Majors, in some capacity, even if it's in relief. Don't you have to keep a guy like Worley around since you don't know what you're going to get from Oswalt tomorrow, rather than a one-inning guy like Scott Mathieson?
Polanco rests, Mayberry starts: Placido Polanco gets the day off due to some minor back stiffness, according to CSN's Jim Salisbury. So the lineup reads like so: J-Roll SS, Valdez 3B, Ibanez LF, Howard 1B, Mayberry CF, Francisco RF, Orr 2B, Ruiz C.
