The Phillies announced this morning that Brad Lidge has been reactivated on the roster, sending Antonio Bastardo to the AAA Iron Pigs. 

Lidge made his final rehab appearance at AA Reading on Tuesday throwing two scoreless innings, striking out four on 34 pitches (22 for strikes) and said he was “ready to go.”  Tuesday was the last of six consecutive outings without giving up a run.

“Lights Out Lidge” may make his first appearance for the Phillies in 2010 this weekend in the highly anticipated series against the Mets.

In other rehab news, there is some speculation that Joe Blanton could be back in the rotation by Monday.

  2. Well dang. Now what am I going to do with my Bastardo shirsey?

    Seriously.

    • Save it for when he’s on the 40-man roster in October 😉
