The Phillies will have to activate Asche (oblique) from the disabled list by Thursday, Ryan Lawrence of the Philly Voice reports.

Asche, who homered for the second straight game Monday for Triple-A Lehigh Valley, will have reached the maximum duration for a rehab assignment Thursday. He missed all of spring training and the first two months of the regular season with an oblique injury. He will enter the mix for playing time in left field once he comes off the disabled list.
