ST. PETERSBURG, Florida (AP) -- The Tampa Bay Rays have reinstated reliever Joel Peralta from the 15-day disabled list and designated left-hander Erik Bedard for assignment.
The moves were announced Monday.
Peralta missed nine games because of an illness.
The right-hander went 2-3 with a 4.15 ERA in 43 games earlier this year.
Bedard was 4-6 with a 4.76 ERA in 17 games, including 15 starts. He was dropped from the rotation in early July.
