Indians setup man Vinnie Pestano is back from the disabled list after missing the past two weeks with elbow tendinitis.

Pestano was his usual excellent self before going on the DL and the underrated right-hander with a 2.48 career ERA rejoins an Indians bullpen that ranks third among AL teams with a 3.03 ERA.

He’ll resume working as the primary setup man for closer Chris Perez, who’s converted 6-of-7 save chances with a 0.69 ERA in 13 innings.
