Andrew Bailey had another strong minor-league rehab outing yesterday, retiring all four batters he faced at Triple-A, and Alex Speier of WEEI.com reports that the Red Sox will activate him from the disabled list tomorrow.
Bailey has missed the entire season following a spring training thumb injury, but he’s thrown 6.1 innings with a 1.42 ERA and 10/1 K/BB ratio while rehabbing in the minors for the past couple weeks.
Boston has today off, so he’ll be available out of the bullpen for Tuesday night’s game against the Orioles. His role upon returning is unclear, although obviously the Red Sox acquired him from the A’s this offseason to be their closer.
