Indians catcher/third baseman Carlos Santana is back from the seven-day concussion disabled list after missing a total of 10 days due to a foul tip to the mask.
Santana also had a concussion in 2012, so no doubt the Indians will monitor his status very closely and may opt against using him any more at catcher for a while.
He was struggling mightily even before the brain injury, hitting just .159 with 46 strikeouts in 50 games, although Santana did display his usual excellent plate discipline with 43 walks. Santana has started 26 games at third base, plus 10 games at catcher, 10 games at designated hitter, and four games at first base.
