Hafner placed on 15-day DL

Travis Hafner right shoulder is causing problems again, and the Indians' designated hitter was placed on the 15-day disabled list shortly before Wednesday's game against the Red Sox.

 

Manager Eric Wedge said Pronk is battling soreness and fatigue in the right shoulder.

 

"We don't think it's anything serious," Wedge said. "Hopefully it's just a two-week thing."

 

Hafner will visit Dr. James Andrews, the surgeon who surgically repaired the shoulder in October. Wedge said the shoulder has been bothering Hafner for three or four days. Pronk was out of the lineup Sunday and Monday.

 

For now, left-hander Rich Rundles has been called up to take Hafner's place, but just for the night. Wedge said the Indians will explore all options to fill that spot before Friday's game in Detroit. David Dellucci, on a rehab assignment at Columbus, is an option, as is Matt LaPorta. But Wedge made it clear that everybody will get consideration, with the Indians factoring in their upcoming opposing starters and the makeup of the roster.

 

More info will be up on the site by game time.

 

Here are tonight's lineups:

 

INDIANS (8-13): CF Grady Sizemore, 2B Asdrubal Cabrera, C Victor Martinez, RF Shin-Soo Choo, 1B Ryan Garko, SS Jhonny Peralta, 3B Mark DeRosa, LF Ben Francisco, DH Kelly Shoppach. RHP Fausto Carmona (1-3, 7.36).

 

RED SOX (13-7): CF Jacoby Ellsbury, 2B Dustin Pedroia, DH David Ortiz, LF Jason Bay, 3B Mike Lowell, C Jason Varitek, 1B Jeff Bailey, RF Jon Van Every, SS Nick Green. LHP Jon Lester (1-2, 4.88).

Hoping its nothing major. Also, hope we get to see LaPorta up. Delluci can wait.

Hope he’s okay. Just when we thought we could relax…

NOOOOOOOOO!!!

Ouch that’s not good and Hafner was doing so well in the 1st month of the year. That’s too bad for Travis we as indians fans are all pulling for Pronk and I hope he gets better soon.

That sucks. If they call up Laporta, maybe some good can come out of it

I think he should stop stealing money and retire. I predict that their gonna call up laporta. AC, please let us know quickly so I can be the first in my fantasy league to claim him.

I doubt it will be LaPorta guys. We have to activate Dellucci next week, so it makes the most sense for it to be him.

I thought some soreness might occur early on. I hope it isn’t serious…..oh, I hope it isn’t serious.

I am going to play devil’s advocate for a minute and not a second longer because it makes me ill to think about it. It is entirely possible that the injury is significantly worse than what the organization is letting on. Need proof? Look back to Victor and Hafner circa 2008. It is entirely possible his career is over (I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit).

Just a note to congratulate you all on a great race! The course was very well marked and I love the 12 fork trophy! Thanks very much for having this!
