PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - The Phillies have officially activated LHP Cole Hamels from the 15-day disabled list.  The move comes as no surprise, seeing as how Hamels had been scheduled to pitch tonight’s series opener in Cincinnati for days.

Hamels hasn’t pitched since August 12th, when he struggled in a loss to the Nationals.   He was later diagnosed with shoulder inflammation (placed on the DL August 23rd, retroactive to August 13th — see related story).

Overall, for the 2011 season so far, Hamels is 13-7 with a 2.62 ERA.

To make room for him on the active roster, utilityman Pete Orr has been optioned to AAA Lehigh Valley.
