Phillies activate Kingery from IL

hidsvThe Philadelphia Phillies reinstated utilityman Scott Kingery from the 10-day injured list ahead of Sunday afternoon’s game against the visiting Colorado Rockies.

Kingery has not played since April 19 due to a right hamstring strain. He is batting .406 with two homers and six RBIs in 14 games this season.

The versatile 25-year-old has already seen action this season at second base, third base, shortstop and in left field. He’ll start in center field and bat seventh on Sunday.

In a corresponding move, the Phillies optioned outfielder Nick Williams to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. He hit .180 with one homer and four RBIs in 38 games this year for Philadelphia.
