BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Orioles have activated first baseman Derrek Lee from the 15-day disabled list before Saturday's game against Toronto.

Lee had been on the DL since May 17 with an oblique strain, and was reinstated a day after a one-game rehab assignment at Double-A Bowie.

Lee was in the lineup at first base, batting fifth. He's hitting .231 with four home runs and 14 RBI.

To make room for Lee, the Orioles optioned left-hander Pedro Viola to Bowie. Viola pitched a perfect 1 2/3 innings in his only appearance.
