Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts returned to the starting lineup after missing 15 games with a broken talus bone in his left ankle.

Bogaerts was activated from the 10-day disabled list Friday.

He started at shortstop and batted fifth against Tampa Bay.

Bogaerts missed more time than initially expected. The 25-year-old, an All-Star two years ago, was batting .368 with nine RBI at the time of his injury.

Infielder/outfielder Brock Holt was put on the disabled list because of a strained left hamstring.

Bogaerts was hurt April 8 while sliding into the Rays dugout to grab an errant ball.

He went 2-for-3 with a home run and a double while playing six innings at shortstop Tuesday night in a rehab appearance for Triple-A Pawtucket.

Bogaerts played in Boston’s first nine games before getting hurt.

Braves righty exits

Atlanta Braves right-hander Julio Teheran left Friday night’s start against the Phillies after three innings because of tightness in his right upper trapezius.

Teheran allowed a three-run homer in the first inning but didn’t allow a hit in the next two innings before coming out. He was replaced by Max Fried.

Teheran is 1-1 with a 4.50 ERA in six starts.

Mets recall Rhame

The New York Mets recalled right-hander Jacob Rhame from Triple-A Las Vegas and optioned right-hander Corey Oswalt to the Pacific Coast League club.

The Mets also claimed left-hander Buddy Baumann off waivers from San Diego and optioned him to Las Vegas.

To make room on the 40-man roster, David Wright was transferred to the 60-day disabled list.

Rhame was available for Friday night’s series opener against the Padres.

He began the year with the Mets, recording one save and a 7.36 ERA in four appearances, before being optioned to the 51s on April 13.

Baumann appeared in one game for the Padres, allowing five runs, two earned, in one-third inning.

Oswalt made his major league debut on April 25 at St. Louis with 4⅔ innings of relief.

Phillies righty on DL

The Phillies placed right-hander Ben Lively on the 10-day disabled list because of a strained lower back.

Righty Jake Thompson was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to take Lively’s roster spot before Friday night’s game against Atlanta.

Lively was 0-2 with a 6.84 ERA in five starts. He earned a spot in the rotation coming out of spring training because of an injury to Jerad Eickhoff. Thompson began the season in Philadelphia and had a 7.20 ERA and one save in two appearances.
