Athletics activate Braden from DL
Braden was activated in time to start against the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night. He had been out since June 23 with tendinitis in his left elbow.
Braden is looking for his first win since throwing a perfect game against Tampa Bay on May 9. He is 0-5 with a 4.31 ERA in eight starts since then.
Bowers was 0-1 with a 4.85 ERA in 13 relief appearances over two stints with Oakland.
