Faria (abdomen) was activated from the disabled list Friday, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Faria is ready to return to action after missing nearly a month with his abdominal injury. He posted quality ratios over 13 starts with the Rays earlier this season -- a 3.32 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, and 77:29 K:BB over 78.2 innings -- but the Rays' rotation is full, so he will pitch out of the bullpen for the time being -- and maybe the rest of the way in order to limit his innings.
