TORONTO - The Cleveland Indians on Saturday activated pitcher Kerry Wood from the 15-day disabled list.

Wood last pitched on July 11 before landing on the DL with a blister on his right index finger. It was the second disabled list stint in 2010 for Wood, who began the season on the DL with a back strain.

The veteran closer takes the roster spot vacated Friday, when the Indians traded outfielder Austin Kearns to the New York Yankees.

In 23 appearances this season (20 innings), Wood has posted a 6.30 earned run average and 1-4 record, while converting eight of his 11 save opportunities. The right-hander has not allowed a run in 15 of his appearances.
