Right-hander Brad Lidge was activated from the 15-day disabled list, the Phillies announced today.

Lidge, 31, was originally placed on the DL during Spring Training on March 24 (retroactive to March 21) while recovering from right knee surgery performed on Feb. 25. He made one rehabilitation appearance with Class A Clearwater, allowing one run in 1.0 inning with two strikeouts.

Acquired in a November trade from Houston, Lidge went 5-3 with 19 saves and a 3.36 ERA in 66 appearances last season with the Astros.

To make room for Lidge on the 25-man roster, right-hander Tim Lahey was designated for assignment. Lahey, 26, was claimed off waivers from the Cubs on March 28. He did not appear in any regular season games with the Phillies.
