Cleveland Indians' catcher Carlos Santana continues to recover from a concussion he sustained over a week ago in a Friday night loss to the Chicago White Sox. Santana was put on the seven-day concussion disabled list following that game, and had resumed cardio activities this past week. On Monday, the Indians announced that Santana would see his first game action as a DH at single-A Lake County, via @TribeInsider:

Manny Acta said on Friday that he expected the slugging catcher to return sometime this week. His backup, Lou Marson, just returned to the lineup this week after taking a pitch off the face in Chicago.
