Santana returns from concussion for Indians
Indians manager Manny Acta made Santana his designated hitter, but he says he'll probably be back behind the plate Wednesday night. The 26-year-old Santana was diagnosed with a mild concussion and placed on the 7-day disabled list on May 27 after being struck in the facemask with a foul ball the previous day against the White Sox.
Cleveland optioned infielder Juan Diaz to Double-A Akron to make room for Santana's return.
Santana is hitting .245 with five home runs and 24 RBIs in 43 games this season. He hit 27 home runs last year.
