CHICAGO (AP) - Boston Red Sox infielder Mark Bellhorn was activated from the disabled list Friday and he joined the team in Chicago as it opened a
six-game road trip.
Bellhorn broke his left thumb Aug. 1 when he was hit by a pitch from Minnesota Twins closer Joe Nathan.
Bellhorn, in his first season with Boston, is batting .256 with 13 home runs and 56 RBIs in 98 games. He played two games in a rehabilitation stint
with Triple-A Pawtucket.
To make room on the roster for Bellhorn, the Red Sox optioned infielder Earl Snyder to Pawtucket. Snyder was called up Tuesday when third baseman
Kevin Youkilis was placed on the 15-day disabled list.
