Zach Putnam has been activated from the disabled list (DL) today. Prior to hitting the DL, Putnam boasted a 2.35 ERA and a 1.20 Walks/Hits per Inning Pitched (WHIP) over 38.1 innings. Putnam’s 7.51 K/9 ratio is second in the bullpen to only Javy Guerra (8.49 K/9). Anyone who follows the Sox knows that we could use all the bullpen help we can get.

In a corresponding move, Andre Rienzo has been optioned to AAA-Charlotte. Rienzo’s lackluster 6.82 ERA and 1.78 WHIP made him the obvious choice to be sent down.
