Oakland Athletics right fielder Stephen Piscotty has been activated from the bereavement list and is starting on Tuesday versus the Boston Red Sox.

A's manager Bob Melvin described how special Piscotty's home run was for the team. The A's gave him the option of sitting out after he took a red-eye flight from California, but Piscotty wanted to play. "It's been an emotional week", Piscotty said, via the East Bay Times. "I know he was really- looking forward to that first at-bat".

Benintendi's solo homer in the fifth pulled Boston back within 3-2, but the A's tacked on a pair of runs in the eighth. "Probably Gretchen ... It was like a walkoff".

To make room for Piscotty and with Trevor Cahill (elbow) expected to return from the disabled list on Wednesday, the A's also optioned right-hander Kendall Graveman to Triple-A Nashville.
