Howard activated from DL for tonight's game

In a surprising move, the Phillies have activated Ryan Howard from the disabled list early. He was scheduled to make another rehab appearance at AAA-Lehigh Valley tonight, but will instead be in Philadelphia. Ross Gload went on the DL to make room for Howard.

It would mark the first time the Phillies had their Opening Day lineup together since May 21st.
