Second baseman Chase Utley has been activated from the disabled list by the Phillies. 

Utley had been rehabbing a strained oblique muscle. 

He played in Reading Wednesday and Thursday nights, going 0-for-9 in his two appearances.

Infielder Michael Martinez was sent down to the IronPigs to make room for Utley on the Phillies roster.

Outfielder Leandro Castro was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a dislocated left pinky to make room for Martinez.
