BALTIMORE -- Chris Perez has been activated from the 15-day disabled list by the Cleveland Indians and will immediately resume his role as closer.

Perez was sidelined May 27 with right shoulder soreness. While he was out, he and his wife were charged with misdemeanour drug possession after marijuana was mailed to their Ohio home in their dog's name.

Both have pleaded not guilty. Perez declined to speak with reporters Thursday at Camden Yards.

Indians manager Terry Francona says Perez's return will strengthen the bullpen by allowing other relievers to return to their previous roles.

The Indians also traded infielder John McDonald, designated for assignment Wednesday, to the Philadelphia Phillies for cash or a player to be named.

To make room for Perez on the 25-man roster, left-hander T.J. House was optioned to Triple-A Columbus.
