Brad Lidge Officially Activated…

According to Andy Martino of Phillieszone on Twitter, the Phillies have officially activated closer Brad Lidge from the 15-Day DL.

Lidge this year was 0-3 with a 7.27 and 13 saves before landing on the DL. Lidge landed on the DL because of a sprained knee, but this DL stint was more to get Lidge straitened out than anything else.

Lidge is pivotal to the Phillies’ success and they need him to somewhat return to the Lidge of last year. Asking him to 100 percent return to last year’s form, is too much to ask at this point. If Lidge is good to go, then the Phillies will once again have one of the best bullpens in the National League.

This move means that Ryan Madson will move back to his role as eigth inning set-up man.
