 OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -Right-hander Steve Trachsel was activated from the disabled list by the Baltimore Orioles on Friday in anticipation of his start against the Oakland Athletics on Saturday.
Trachsel, who was out with a strained gluteus muscle, hasn't pitched since giving up five runs and nine hits in 1 2-3 innings against the Los Angeles Angels on June 29. He's 5-6 with a 4.95 ERA this season.
The Orioles optioned left-hander Garrett Olson to Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday to make room for Trachsel. Olson was 1-0 with a 3.86 ERA in two starts.
