Ryan Raburn needs surgery to repair a damaged meniscus in his left knee.

He's done for the year. Raburn was a pleasant surprise for the Indians last season, but he'll finish 2014 with a disappointing .200/.250/.297 batting line and four home runs over 74 games. The 33-year-old is under contract for $2.5 million next season.

Ryan Raburn (knee) might not return this season.

Raburn reported improvement with his left knee Tuesday, but he's set to undergo an MRI and the Indians seem unlikely to push him to return at this point. It would be the end of a disappointing season for Raburn, who has hit just .200/.250/.297 with four homers over 74 games this season.

Ryan Raburn is expected to undergo an MRI on his ailing left knee.

Raburn left Saturday's game with a hyperextended knee and has yet to experience any improvement. More won't be known about his status until after the exam. "He's still pretty tender, pretty sore," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "We're gonna have [head trainer James Quinlan] talk to [assistant trainer Jeff Desjardins] and see, see if we should get him back to Cleveland. We probably need to get him checked."

Sep 13 - 8:32 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.
