The Phillies activated RHP Kevin Millwood from the disabled list yesterday.

Millwood had been on the DL with tendinitis in his right elbow since Aug. 5, missing 34 games. He threw about 35 pain-free pitches in a simulated game Friday, but Phillies Manager Larry Bowa was unsure when Millwood might be ready to return.

Millwood is 9-6 with a 4.86 ERA in 23 starts after going 14-12 with a 4.01 ERA in 35 games last year, including a no-hitter against the Giants.

* HALLADAY IN SIMULATION: Blue Jays ace Roy Halladay threw 25 pitches yesterday during his second simulated game in four days.

The reigning AL Cy Young Award winner is scheduled to throw again Thursday. If all goes well then, he is expected to start Sept. 21 against the Yankees.

Halladay (7-7, 4.35 ERA) has been on the DL since July 20 because of a strained muscle in his right shoulder. He also was on the disabled list from May 28 to June 12 with a sore shoulder.

* SURGERY FOR SALMON: Anaheim DH Tim Salmon will undergo cartilage replacement surgery on his left knee this week. Salmon, 36, also will have surgery on his left shoulder this winter.

* MILLIONS SERVED: Yesterday's crowd of 41,932 put the Angels over the 3 million mark in attendance for the second year in a row, just the second time ever. Their total is 3,200,450 with a nine home games left.
