Andrew Bailey to DL, Craig Breslow activated

05.06.13 at 4:10 pm ET

After an MRI confirmed tendinitis in the right biceps of Andrew Bailey, the Red Sox place the closer on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to April 29).

“It is what we thought it was,” said Bailey, who, while frustrated by another trip to the DL, described his absence as “a little blip on the radar.”

Bailey, who has a 1.46 ERA and 20 strikeouts in 12 1/3 innings, suggested that he will rest for a couple of days, and seemed optimistic that, given the absence of structural damage in his throwing arm, he would be back when eligible to return (he’s eligible to come off the DL on May 14, an off-day).

In Bailey’s absence, left-hander Craig Breslow will be activated from the disabled list, where he’d resided all year due to shoulder inflammation.
