Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Oakland Athletics activated outfielder Craig Gentry from the 15-day disabled list Saturday and designated outfielder Sam Fuld for assignment.
Gentry was sent to the DL on March 29, retroactive to March 21, with a lower back strain. He started a rehab assignment at Triple-A Sacramento on Monday and went 6-for-12 with a double and four RBI in three games.
The 30-year-old outfielder spent his first five big league seasons with the Texas Rangers before being acquired by Oakland in the offseason.
