Indians Vs. Tigers: Travis Hafner Activated From Paternity List

The Cleveland Indians will be welcoming back new father Travis Hafner, who left the team on Wednesday to be with his wife Amy during the birth of their child:

The Paternity List, which was introduced in 2011, gives players from one to three days off. In his two games with the Indians, the 32-year-old Rottino had five at-bats, no hits and one RBI.

Hafner is hitting .230 with 10 home runs through 59 games with the Indians, and should be available for Cleveland's game against the Detroit Tigers on Saturday at 7:05 p.m.
