BOSTON (AP) Right-hander Phil Hughes has been activated from the 10-day disabled list by the Minnesota Twins.
The 31-year-old Hughes had been on the DL since complaining of a ''dead feeling'' in his pitching shoulder on May 21. He allowed one run in three innings during three rehabilitation appearances with Triple-A Rochester.
Hughes has been mostly a starter since 2009, but manager Paul Molitor said Hughes will work out of the bullpen when he returns.
Left-hander Craig Breslow was put on the 10-day DL with rib cage soreness. He is 1-1 with a 5.28 ERA in 27 games.
