Indians activate Vinnie Pestano from disabled list

Eric P. Mull-US PRESSWIRE

Pestano had been on the disabled list since May 6 with elbow tendinitis.

The Cleveland Indians activated right handed reliever Vinnie Pestano from the disabled list on Friday. He has been on the disabled list since May 6 due to right elbow tendinitis.

Nick Hagadone was sent back to Triple-A to create room on the roster for Pestano, reports MLB.com. Hagadone was originally called up when Pestano first hit the DL.

Pestano originally just took a few days off in an attempt to work through the injury. Both Pestano and the Indians were hopeful he could avoid a DL stint. That, of course, was not the case.

Pestano, 28, has been the Indians relief man and one of the team's best relievers over the past two years. Between 2011 and 2012 he posted a 2.45 ERA with a 10.9 K/9 over 137 games. In eight games this season prior to his injury, Pestano has given up two runs with eight Ks.

Hagadone gave up six earned runs in 2.2 innings over five games in his latest call up. He was also on the major league roster earlier in the season and overall has a 7.20 ERA for the Indians.
