BJ Upton has been activated off the disabled list and will return to center field for the game today vs. the Phillies. He made three rehab appearances in Gwinnett, going 4-for-12 with three doubles and three strikeouts.

To make room for Upton, Gerald Laird was placed on the disabled list, retroactive to July 26. He spent several days battling a kidney stone, but eventually had to have a procedure to have it removed yesterday.

Meanwhile, Jordan Schafer will begin a rehab assignment in Gwinnett today. He's predicted to return to the Atlanta club sometime this week.
