Travis Hafner Injury: Rehab Assignment Will Begin Wednesday

It has been a little over a month since Travis Hafner had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee. Now recovered, he will begin a rehab assignment on Wednesday.

Hafner will likely play four or five games for Triple-A Columbus before rejoining the Cleveland Indians. The team hosts the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Monday.

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.
