After an ugly encounter last night at home plate with Boston’s Ryan Kalish wherein it appeared that Carlos Santana’s knee might have been seriously injured, there is good news, as well as cautionary news, today.
Santana has been placed on the 15-day disabled list, although the injury “tested well” after the game last night and might not be as serious as first feared.
Results of an MRI, as well as an update on Santana’s condition by the Indians, will be forthcoming.
Travis Hafner was also placed on the DL, retroactive to July 29th with shoulder inflammation. Lou Marson and David Huff were called up from the minors to take the two roster spots, with Huff ready to make a start against Boston tonight.
