Ryan Raburn blasted his fourth home run of the season on Friday as the Indians dropped the opener of their three-game weekend series to the Tigers.

Raburn victimized his former mates with a solo shot in the second inning to open the game's scoring. He also singled in the contest, finishing the night 2-for-3 and raising his season slash to a disappointing .200/.246/.297.
Sep 12 - 11:17 PM

Indians activated OF/INF Ryan Raburn from the 15-day disabled list.

Raburn ended up missing the minimum due to right wrist soreness. He'll start at the DH spot and bat seventh Tuesday against the Tigers.
Sep 2 - 2:58 PM

Ryan Raburn, just placed on the disabled list four days ago with wrist soreness, will begin a rehab assignment in Triple-A Columbus on Saturday night.

Obviously, Raburn's disabled list stint was more about just getting him off the roster for a bit than any sort of injury. He's hit just .191/.240/.277 this season.
Aug 23 - 3:57 PM

Indians placed UTIL Ryan Raburn on the 15-day disabled list with right wrist soreness.

It's not clear how long he'll be out. Raburn has batted just .191/.240/.277 in 70 games this season for Cleveland while appearing at four different positions.
Aug 19 - 5:15 PM

Ryan Raburn went 0-for-3 before being lifted for a pinch-hitter on Wednesday.

Raburn was supposed to get considerable playing time against righties in addition to his duties against lefties, particularly once Carlos Santana won the third base job. However, his slow start, combined with Lonnie Chisenhall's much better one, has changed that in a hurry. He'll likely be limited to starting against southpaws until he heats up and maybe even afterwards.
Apr 23 - 11:17 PM

Ryan Raburn went 3-for-4 and drove in four runs in the Indians' 16-4 drubbing of the Padres on Friday.

Between DHing and playing some right field against lefties, Raburn could be a fixture in the Indians' early season lineup. Giving him a chance to prove 2013 was no fluke isn't a bad idea. That said, the Indians will likely prove better off playing Lonnie Chisenhall over him against righties.
Mar 29 - 1:36 AM

Ryan Raburn went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer against the Reds on Monday.

Raburn took Alfredo Simon deep in the second inning. He finished with three RBI in total, adding to a productive spring in limited playing time. Raburn has been bothered by a knee contusion, but he should be ready for Opening Day.
Mar 24 - 6:51 PM

Ryan Raburn (knee) will return to action as a designated hitter Wednesday.

He'll then get some at-bats in a minor league game Thursday. Raburn suffered a left knee contusion over a week ago when he collided with the outfield wall, but he's made significant progress. Barring setbacks, he'll be fine for Opening Day.
Mar 18 - 8:01 PM

Ryan Raburn (knee) will not play on Monday.

Raburn suffered a right knee contusion during Friday's game and hoped to return to the lineup Monday, but the Indians are being cautious. The 33-year-old outfielder ran on the anti-gravity treadmill Monday and should return in the next day or two if he continues to show signs of progress.
Mar 10 - 12:48 PM

Ryan Raburn (knee) could return to action on Monday.

Raburn suffered a left knee contusion Friday when he crashed into the right field wall. He has six hits -- including two homers -- in 10 at-bats this spring.
Mar 9 - 1:13 PM

Ryan Raburn has been diagnosed with a left knee contusion.

Raburn suffered the ailment during the second inning when he crashed into the right field wall. He'll be re-evaluated Saturday but should be fine to return to action in a day or two.
Mar 7 - 5:10 PM

Ryan Raburn left Friday's game against the Cubs after the second inning following a collision with the right field wall.

Raburn initially remained in the game after smacking into the wall while trying to catch a Kris Bryant homer in the bottom of the second, but he was then pinch-hit for in the top of the third. The Indians should provide an update on his status shortly.
Mar 7 - 3:56 PM

Ryan Raburn went 2-for-3 with a home run against the Mariners on Wednesday.

Raburn hit a two-run shot off of Lucas Luetge in the seventh inning, his second blast of the spring. He rebounded nicely for the Tribe last season, posting a .901 OPS in 277 trips to the plate. He'll platoon with David Murphy in right field and may get the occasional start at first base as well.
Mar 5 - 6:50 PM

Ryan Raburn blasted a two-run homer off Homer Bailey, powering the Indians to a 4-0 victory over the Reds in Cactus League play on Friday.

The 32-year-old utilityman had a resurgence in Cleveland in 2013, slashing .272/.357/.543 with 16 homers and 55 RBI in only 243 at-bats. He mashes against left-handed pitching and has enough power to be mixed league relevant provided he finds his way into Terry Francona's lineup semi-regularly.
