Mayberry back up with Phillies

John Mayberry Jr. was back in Pittsburgh as a member of the

Philadelphia Phillies 24 hours after joining Triple-A Lehigh


Mayberry was recalled Saturday morning when Ross Gload was

placed on paternity leave. Mayberry, an outfielder, had started the

13 previous games for Philadelphia prior to Friday, when the

Phillies activated Shane Victorino from the disabled list.

Mayberry arrived in Charlotte, N.C., about 4 p.m. Friday and

went 1 for 4 with a run in the Iron Pigs’ 4-1 win. Saturday

morning, Lehigh Valley manager Ryne Sandberg called with the news

he was rejoining the Phillies. Mayberry, hitting .231 in 45 games

with Philadelphia, was first seen in the clubhouse not long after 4

p.m. Saturday.
