CLEVELAND (AP) -Left-hander Aaron Fultz was activated from the 15-day disabled list Wednesday by the Cleveland Indians, who designated right-hander Fernando Cabrera for assignment.
Fultz had been sidelined since June 24 with a strained right ribcage muscle. Signed as a free agent in December, the 33-year-old went 3-1 with a 1.71 ERA in 32 relief outings for the Indians before experiencing soreness while pitching June 22 in Washington.
He pitched two scoreless innings in a pair of rehab assignments in the minors this week.
Cabrera, 25 went 1-2 with a 5.61 ERA in 24 relief appearances in Cleveland. The Indians have 10 days to trade him, place him on waivers or send him outright to the minors.
