CLEVELAND -- Outfielder Delmon Young has been activated from the 15-day disabled list by the Philadelphia Phillies after missing the first 26 games because of off-season surgery on his right ankle.

Young is batting fifth and is the designated hitter Tuesday against Cleveland. Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said Young, who primarily was a designated hitter last season with Detroit, likely will play right field Wednesday in the finale of the two-game series.

Young, who had the surgery in November, completed a minor league rehabilitation assignment in which he hit .367 with no homers and two RBIs. He played right field in those games.

In addition to his $750,000 base salary, Young earned a $250,000 bonus for his first day on the active 25-man roster.

Outfielder Ezequiel Carrera, who was hitting .077 in 13 games, was designated for assignment.
