BOSTON (CBS) – The Boston Red Sox activated right-hander Joel Hanrahan from the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday, leaving John Farrell with a tough decision to make.

While Hanrahan recovered from a hamstring strain that’s kept him out since April 14, Andrew Bailey closed out five of his six save opportunities — striking out 13 batters in eight innings.

So who will close games going forward? Farrell hasn’t said much, but we could find out as early as Tuesday.

The 31-year-old Hanrahan went 0-1 with three saves and an 11.57 ERA before hitting the DL. He pitched two games for the Pawtucket Red Sox over the last week, allowing two runs in two innings of work.

Hanrahan will be available when the Red Sox open a three-game set with the Blue Jays in Toronto.

Hanrahan takes the roster spot left by Daniel Bard, who was optioned to Pawtucket following Sunday’s win over the Houston Astros.
