The Tampa Bay Rays activated right-hander Nick Anderson from the 60-day injured list Monday and optioned him to Triple-A Durham.
Anderson, 32, has been sidelined all season after undergoing surgery on his right elbow in October.
He has made nine appearances with Durham on a rehab assignment, going 1-0 with a 7.88 ERA across eight innings of relief.
Anderson is 7-6 with a 2.89 ERA and eight saves in 93 career bullpen appearances with the Miami Marlins (2019) and the Rays (2019-21).
To make room on the 40-man roster, Tampa Bay designated right-hander Phoenix Sanders for assignment.
Sanders, 27, made his MLB debut on April 14 and had no decisions and a 3.07 ERA in eight relief appearances.
