Fantasy Tip: Darin Ruf will get playing time at first base until Ryan Howard (knee) returns, but he'll find a spot in the outfield after that. John Mayberry Jr. and Casper Wells will both have short-term value in outfield spots as part-time players the rest of the way, too.

The Philadelphia Phillies activated OF Delmon Young (ankle) from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, April 30, and designated OF Ezequiel Carrera for assignment in a corresponding move.

Philadelphia Phillies OF Delmon Young (ankle) is progressing on his minor league rehab assignment, but his return to the big league team is not imminent, even though the team could use a designated hitter early next week, according to assistant general manager Scott Proefrock. Young played his second rehab game with Triple-A Lehigh Valley Friday, April 26. The Phillies believe that Young needs more time to learn right field, a position he hasn't played since 2007. The latest date for Young's season debut would be May 11, barring any injury setback.
Fantasy Tip: The Phillies aren't happy with Young's defensive showing so far during his rehab assignment, but at the same time, it'll allow them to make sure that his ankle is completely healthy. Philadelphia has Ezequiel Carrera, Laynce Nix and John Mayberry Jr. as outfield depth, so their is no rush to bring Young back. When he does return, he should only be rostered immediately in deep NL leagues.
