Rollins Returns, Dobbs Departs


After much speculation, the Phillies have activated shortstop Jimmy Rollins from the 15 Day disabled list.  In Jimmy's absence, the Phils have dropped 17 of their last 26 and enter play tonight 5 1/2 games behind the Braves in the NL East standings.  To make room for Rollins, the Phillies have designated Greg Dobbs for assignment.  Dobbs struggled this season hitting just .152 with a .222 On Base Percentage.

Carlos Ruiz has landed on the 15 day DL with a concussion.  Ruiz was hit by a broken bat Friday night, and hasn't played since.   

Other moves:  Southpaw Mike Zagurski has been recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.  Righty Scott Mathieson was optioned to Lehigh Valley.
