Jack Hannahan Injury Update: Indians 3B Activated From DL, Scott Barnes Optioned To Triple-A

On Friday afternoon, the Cleveland Indians announced via the team's official twitter account that third baseman Jack Hannahan has been activated from the 15-day disabled list. In order to make room on the roster for Hannahan the club was forced to option left-handed pitcher Scott Barnes to Triple-A Columbus.

Hannahan was originally placed on the disabled list with a strained calf prior to the Indians game against the Kansas City Royals on May 28. After undergoing some physical testing this past weekend he made a rehab appearance with Columbus on June 11 and finished out the rest of the week with the club.

He was hitting .276 with six doubles, three homeruns and 18 RBI prior to being placed on the disabled list and his return will be an added bonus to the Indians who currently sit 1.5 games back of the Chicago White Sox for first place in the American League's Central Division.

Cleveland will begin a three-game interleague set against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night.
