Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Philadelphia Phillies have activated pitcher Cliff Lee from the 60-day disabled list to start Monday night's game against the San Francisco Giants.

Lee's last start came on May 18 against the Cincinatti Reds. He pitched 6 2/3 innings, allowing only two runs in the Phillies' 8-3 victory. He landed on the disabled list in late May with a left elbow strain.

The left-hander is set to make his 11th start of the season and has a record of 4-4 with a 3.18 ERA.

The Phillies made a host of other moves prior to the game as infielder Reid Brignac and catcher Wil Nieves were activated from the 15-day disabled list. Outfielder Tony Gwynn Jr. was designated for assignment, infielder Cesar Hernandez was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley and catcher Koyie Hill was outrighted.
