Todd Zolecki reported on Twitter that the Phillies activated catcher Brian Schneider from the DL today. To make room for Schneider, the Phillies designated catcher Paul Hoover for assignment. If he clears waivers, he w likely accept assignment for AAA Lehigh.
Hoover filled in pretty well for the injured Schneider, batting .278 in 18 at-bats. Schneider was batting .167 before he went down with a left Achilles strain a couple weeks ago.
The Phillies have yet to field their best 25-man roster. And are still nine games above .500 and in first place in the NL East.
