 WASHINGTON (AP) -The Atlanta Braves activated closer Bob Wickman from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday and optioned reliever Kevin Barry to Triple-A Richmond.
Wickman blew back-to-back save opportunities before being placed on the DL on April 30 with tendinitis in his upper back. He had allowed six runs and five hits in 1 2-3 innings in his last three appearances before he was sidelined.
Wickman was available for Tuesday night's game against the Washington Nationals.
Right-hander Barry allowed five earned runs in two innings in his only appearance this season.
