Red Sox activate Andrew Bailey from DL, Stephen Drew back in lineup


The Boston Red Sox activated Andrew Bailey from the 15-day disabled list on Monday.

Bailey missed three weeks with a right biceps injury but should move right back into the closers role in Boston. Prior to the injury Bailey had a 1.46 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 20/4 K/BB ratio in 12 1/3 innings.

With Joel Hanrahan out of the picture, Bailey should have a comfortable grip on the closing duties in Boston.

The Red Sox will also welcome back shortstop Stephen Drew to the lineup on Monday. Drew had missed two games over the weekend while dealing with a back issue. Curretnly the 30-year-old is hitting .238/.336/.410 with three home runs, 18 RBI and a .746 OPS through 31 games this season.
