41-year old 1B/DH Jim Thome came off the D.L. at the right time, with the Phillies playing interleague road games. He has played in 8 games so far in June for the Phillies and he is 11 for 26 (.423 avg, 1.346 OPS) with 7 runs scored, 3 homers and 13 RBIs. Thome has now played in 20 games overall this year for the Phillies and he is 13 of 44 (.295 avg, .938 OPS) with 7 runs scored, 3 homers and 13 RBIs. The Phillies hope that Thome keeps up the hot bat when he returns to coming off the bench when they start playing at home against A.L. teams and when they start playing N.L. games again.
