PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- The Philadelphia Phillies activated left-handed reliever José Alvarado from the injured list prior to Friday night's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Alvarado has been sidelined since May 8 with left elbow inflammation. The 28-year-old has allowed one earned run in 14 appearances over 14 ⅓ innings, striking out 24 and walking none.

Alvarado recently pitched two innings in two rehab appearances between Lehigh Valley and Reading. Before being injured, he had converted five of seven save opportunities.

To make room for Alvarado on the 26-man roster, right-handed pitcher Connor Brogdon was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Brogdon's 28.1 innings pitched ranked second among Phillies relievers, while his 27 appearances (one start) were tied for second on the club. Eighteen of those appearances were scoreless.
