In 39 games this season, Hafner is hitting .242 with six home runs and 23 RBI. In his absence, the team has struggled to find a bat that can replace his. Lonnie Chisenhall is penciled in at designated hitter for Tuesday's game.
Hafner has played more than 100 games in a season just once since 2007. He also has not had more than 57 RBI in any season since then.
