Phillies left-hander Cole Hamels is off the disabled list and will make his season debut tonight against the Dodgers after sitting out the first three weeks with biceps tendinitis.

Hamels made three minor-league rehab starts to convince the Phillies he was ready to return, throwing a combined 17 innings with a 2.12 ERA and 12/1 K/BB ratio. That includes seven innings of one-run ball last time out.

To make room for Hamels on the roster the Phillies demoted reliever B.J. Rosenberg back to Triple-A after the right-hander allowed 10 of the last 15 batters he faced to reach base in a trio of ugly outings.
