Doumit activated off DL

PHILADELPHIA — Catcher Ryan Doumit has completed a faster-than-expected recovery from a broken scaphoid bone in his right wrist and today was activated off the disabled list.

Doumit will be in uniform tonight. Lineups for the game against the Phillies have not yet been posted.

Doumit was injured April 19 in a game against the Atlanta Braves. He missed 73 games — but originally was not expected to rejoin the team until after the All-Star break.

Catcher Robinzon Diaz was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Also, as expected, infielder Luis Cruiz was called up from Indy as insurance against second baseman Freddy Sanchez’s balky lower back.
