Indians activate Travis Hafner from the disabled list

Aug 15, 2010, 12:42 PM EDT

According to the Indians’ official Twitter feed, designated hitter Travis Hafner has been activated from the disabled list.

Hafner was placed on the 15-day disabled list on July 29 with yet another case of soreness and discomfort in his shoulder.  It’s kind of shocking, given the big man’s history of shoulder problems, that he was able to return within three weeks.  Look for him to be inserted in the Tribe’s starting lineup immediately.

The 33-year-old Hafner is batting .267 with a disappointing .798 OPS, nine home runs and 33 RBI in 270 at-bats this season.  But he’s owed $13 million in 2011 and the same amount in 2012, so the Indians are probably stuck with him.

Outfielder Jordan Brown was optioned back to Triple-A Columbus in a corresponding move.

    His OPS is certainly disappointing when you consider his huge contract, but his OPS+ is right in line with what he’s done since 2007, so the Indians can’t be too disappointed with his performance this year.
