Tyler Olson activated from disabled list

CLEVELAND– The Cleveland Indians have activated left-handed relief pitcher Tyler Olson from the 10-day disabled list.

Olson has been on the DL since June 17 with a strained left latissimus dorsi. He has made three rehab starts in Class Triple-A Columbus since then, tossing 1.1 innings without giving up any hits or runs and striking out four.

The southpaw has appeared in 28 games for the Indians this year, posting a 7.27 ERA and limiting left-handed hitters to a .216 (8-for-37) average.

To make room for Olson on the roster, the Indians have designated reliever Marc Rzepczynski for assignment.

Olson getting into a groove would be huge for the Indians, who continue to have issues with their bullpen. The latest example of that came on Tuesday night in a ninth inning meltdown. After leading 4-0, the Tribe went on to lose 7-4 and still continue to search for answers when it comes to reliever arms as the trade deadline looms.
