CHICAGO — The Red Sox, as expected, activated Andrew Bailey off the disabled list today. Righthander Jose De La Torre was optioned back to Triple A Pawtucket.
Bailey has been out since April 29 with a biceps strain. Bailey was pitching well before the injury. He had a 1.46 earned run average through 13 games and 12.1 innings. Bailey had allowed only six hits with four walks and 20 strikeouts.
De La Torre appeared in two games.
