The Philadelphia Phillies second basemen Chase Utley has been activated, and the all star looks to be coming back into the Phillies lineup. Less than seven weeks ago, Utley had thumb surgery after tearing a ligament sliding into second base against Cincinnati.

Utley is batting .277 with 11 homeruns and 37 runs batted in on the season. Utley in his career is just shy of .300 for a career batting average. The second baseman has cracked 172 homeruns and drove in more than 600 runs.

Philadelphia comes into Tuesday’s action at home with the San Francisco Giants, 2.5 games behind the Atlanta Braves at the top of the National League East. The Phillies and Giants are battling for the top of the wildcard. Coming into the game on Tuesday both teams were tied at the top of the race.

To make room for Utley, the Phillies designated Greg Dobbs for assignment.
