Fairbanks, who was activated from the injured list Friday, fired a perfect eighth inning in a win over the Red Sox on Monday, striking out the side and securing his 11th hold.

The hard-throwing right-hander didn't see action over the weekend, so Monday represented his first time back on the big-league mound since July 28. Fairbanks had allowed three runs (two earned) over his last two outings before going on the shelf, but he'd forged an eight-appearance scoreless streak immediately prior to that stretch that Monday's dominant performance was reminiscent of.
