Indians activate 3B Jack Hannahan
The Cleveland Indians have activated third baseman Jack Hannahan
from the 15-day disabled list for the start of their interleague
series with Pittsburgh.
Hannahan, who had been out since May 28 with a strained left
calf, is in the starting lineup for Friday’s series opener against
the Pirates. Hannahan also missed time earlier this season with a
lower back issue. This was his first career trip to the DL.
To make room for Hannahan, the Indians optioned left-hander
Scott Barnes to Triple-A Columbus. He pitched in four games with
Indians manager Manny Acta said Hannahan will not play every day
as he slowly works his way back. Lonnie Chisenhall will also get
playing time at third.
Hannahan is batting .276 with three homers and 18 RBIs in 31
