Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Oakland Athletics activated outfielder Craig Gentry from the 15-day disabled list on Friday and optioned relief pitcher Dan Otero to Triple-A Sacramento.

Otero has accumulated a 2.28 ERA with a 1.07 WHIP and one save in 56 relief appearances in his second year with the A's.
