Righthander Brett Myers was activated from the 15-day disabled list. Myers originally went on the DL with a right shoulder strain on May 25. To make room for him on the 25-man roster, lefthander Mike Zagurski was optioned to Ottawa.
Myers, 26, was 1-2 with six saves and a 5.50 ERA prior to going on the DL. In 18 relief appearances, he was 1-0 with a 2.61 ERA and 32 strikeouts in 20.2 innings (13.9 SO/9.0 IP). Zagurski, 24, went 1-0 with a 4.58 ERA in 23 appearances with the Phillies.
As previously announced, second baseman Chase Utley was placed on the 15-day DL with a broken right hand and infielder/outfielder Joe Thurston had his contract purchased from triple-A Ottawa to replace him on the 25-man roster. To make room for Thurston on the 40-man roster, infielder Danny Sandoval was designated for assignment.
