Astros reinstate closer Ryan Pressly from paternity list


(SportsRadio 610) -- Astros closer Ryan Pressly has been reinstated from the paternity list after the birth of his son.

Pressly spent the past few days on the list after he and his wife, Kat, welcomed baby Wyatt Cole Pressly on Sunday.

Astros manager Dusty Baker said Pressly barely made in time for the child's birth with the team on a road trip in the Bay Area.

To make room for Pressly on the active roster, the Astros optioned Bryan Abreu to the Taxi Squad. Pressly will remain in Houston while the Astros finish their two-game series against the Dodgers in Los Angeles, then rejoin the team Thursday when they host the Minnesota Twins.
