Indians Recall Scott Barnes, Place Travis Hafner On Disabled List

The Cleveland Indians announced in a tweet on Wednesday morning that they made two moves after Tuesday night's loss to the Kansas City Royals. DH/1B Travis Hafner has been placed on the 15 day disabled list with right knee inflammation and in his place, LHP Scott Barnes has been called up from AAA Columbus.

The Barnes move was likely because the team is very short on bullpen arms at the moment -- Barnes is a hot prospect and has been 0-2 with a 3.81 ERA this season for Cleveland's AAA squad.

Hafner has been mediocre but not bad at the plate in his 39 games so far this season, hitting only .242/.380/.439 in a solid season overall for the Indians.
