Indians activate Vinnie Pestano from the disabled list

1 Comment

Indians setup man Vinnie Pestano is back from the disabled list after missing the past two weeks with elbow tendinitis.

Pestano was his usual excellent self before going on the DL and the underrated right-hander with a 2.48 career ERA rejoins an Indians bullpen that ranks third among AL teams with a 3.03 ERA.

He’ll resume working as the primary setup man for closer Chris Perez, who’s converted 6-of-7 save chances with a 0.69 ERA in 13 innings.

Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. scaled the center field fence to rob Padres shortstop Luis Urías of a solo home run in the fourth inning of Sunday afternoon’s game. Urías was trying to take advantage of a 0-1 slider from Ryan Brasier. Had Bradley not made the grab, the Padres’ lead would have been extended to 4-1.

Unfortunately for the Red Sox, they weren’t able to take advantage of Bradley’s effort, dropping Sunday’s contest 3-1. They still won the series against the Padres, however. The Sox will continue their road trip for two games against the Rockies followed by three versus the Angels.
