Arizona To Activate Closer Mantei

April 21, 2000

PHOENIX (AP) _ Closer Matt Mantei has completed his last rehabilitation appearance without any ill effects and will be activated by the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday, manager Buck Showalter said.

Mantei has been on the disabled list since April 2 with biceps tendinitis. He made consecutive appearances for Triple-A Tucson on Tuesday and Wednesday and experienced no pain in his arm.

On Wednesday night, he threw 24 pitches while getting two outs. Mantei walked two, gave up one hit and a run.

The Diamondbacks will have to make a roster move to make room for Mantei, but Showalter said an announcement would not be made until Friday.
