The Phillies have activated Brad Lidge for this weekend’s series against the San Diego Padres. Danys Baez has been designated for assignment to make room for the Phils former closer. It’s unclear what kind of stuff Lidge has, with mixed results from rehab stints having been reported, but if Lidge can be remotely close to the closer of old, he could be a very effective piece in the Phillies pen.
With Michael Stutes really stepping up, and Antonio Bastardo and Ryan Madson showing shutdown closer type stuff, it should be interesting to see how Charlie Manuel uses Lidge going forward.
