A's reinstate closer Bailey from DL, option down Wolf

CBSSports.com wire reports

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Oakland Athletics have reinstated All-Star closer Andrew Bailey from the disabled list and optioned right-hander Ross Wolf to the minors.

The team announced the move Sunday.

Bailey had been sidelined with a right intercostal strain. He pitched two-thirds of an inning for Triple-A Sacramento on Friday, allowing two runs and three hits.

The A's used several different relievers at closer while Bailey was out. Jerry Blevins earned his first career save Thursday against Tampa Bay, and Craig Breslow got his third career save Friday.

Wolf had a 2.45 ERA in four games with the A's.
