Indians purchased the contract of OF Jerry Sands from Triple-A Columbus.

Sands was called back up from Triple-A with Carlos Santana going on the paternity leave list. The 27-year-old went 8-for-23 (.348) with two doubles and four RBI over nine games with the Indians earlier this season. He'll provide some bench depth over the next couple of days.

Indians placed C Carlos Santana on the paternity leave list.

Santana can remain on paternity leave for 24 to 72 hours. The Indians have called up Jerry Sands to take his place on the active roster.
May 28 - 5:48 PM

Indians recalled RHP Austin Adams from Triple-A Columbus.

Adams has allowed one run over 5 2/3 innings with the Indians this season. He'll pitch in middle relief.
May 28 - 5:45 PM

Indians placed RHP Scott Atchison on the 15-day disabled list with a left ankle sprain.

Austin Adams will replace him in Cleveland's bullpen. Atchison, 39, has posted a 5.74 ERA and 10/3 K/BB ratio over 15 2/3 innings this season. No word yet on how much time he'll need to miss.
May 28 - 5:44 PM

Carlos Santana is expected to be placed on the paternity leave list.

Santana's wife gave birth to a baby girl Thursday morning. The Indians should make an official roster move soon.

Indians prospect OF Tyler Naquin had a perfect day at the plate Wednesday for Double-A Akron, going 4-for-4 with a home run and three RBI.

Naquin opened the season on the disabled list as a result of a hand injury he suffered last June, and he didn’t join Akron until late April. He’s quickly making up for the lost time, though, batting .318/.408/.430 through 25 games. The 24-year-old also has nine extra-base hits—his dinger on Wednesday was his first of 2015—and five stolen bases, and he sports a solid 19/14 strikeout-to-walk ratio on the season.

Carlos Carrasco pitched eight innings of one-run ball and struck out eight as the Indians crushed the Rangers 12-3 on Wednesday.

It can be hard to see how Carrasco still has a 4.24 ERA with his 66/13 K/BB ratio and just five homers allowed in 57 1/3 innings, but then one remembers just how bad the Indians defense is and it's a bit easier to figure out.
May 27 - 3:18 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall finished 3-for-5 with a homer, a double and three RBI Wednesday versus the Rangers.

Chisenhall has been a big disappointment, but there's still plenty of time for him to turn it around. Fortunately for him, the Indians don't have anyone else they want to break in at third base.
May 27 - 3:13 PM

Michael Bourn went 3-for-5 with a stolen base Wednesday against the Rangers.

Bourn is batting .317 with a .394 OBP in 60 at-bats this month after coming in at .200 with a .264 OBP in April and losing his leadoff spot as a result. The Indians are happy with Jason Kipnis at the top of the order, so Bourn will probably keep hitting low in the order for the foreseeable future.
May 27 - 3:12 PM

Yan Gomes is not in the Indians' lineup Wednesday.

As expected, he hasn't been catching back-to-back games as he eased back into things in his return from the disabled list. Roberto Perez is behind the dish in Gomes' place.
May 27 - 9:32 AM

Brandon Moss is not in the Indians' lineup Wednesday.

It's a rare day off versus a righty for Moss. David Murphy is starting in right field, while Nick Swisher is handling designated hitter duties.
May 27 - 9:31 AM

Carlos Santana (wrist) is back in the Indians' lineup Wednesday.

Santana was hit on the left wrist by a pitch in Tuesday's game, but X-rays came back clean and he evidently felt fine when he arrived at the park Wednesday morning. The first baseman is batting .219/.368/.363 with five homers and 24 RBI this season.
May 27 - 9:29 AM

Ryan Raburn went 2-for-3 with a home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

Raburn continues to start in the middle of the Indians lineup against lefties, and he rewarded his manager's faith on Tuesday. Raburn blasted a solo homer in the first inning off Rangers starter Wandy Rodriguez, his second home run of the season. Raburn is batting .309/.368/.544 in a platoon role with the Tribe.
May 27 - 12:09 AM

X-rays on Carlos Santana's left wrist came back negative.

Santana was hit on the wrist by a pitch in the ninth inning of Tuesday's game. He stayed in the contest and should be fine, but the Indians will check on him Wednesday to see how sore he is. With a day game, there's a good chance Santana could be rested.
May 27 - 12:01 AM

Danny Salazar suffered a cut nail/blister on his right middle finger when he allowed a three-run homer to Prince Fielder in the fifth inning Tuesday.

He remained in the game to record four more outs after that. It's not clear at this point whether Salazar's next start could possibility be affected, but obviously the Indians will be monitoring him. He yielded three runs over 5 2/3 frames Tuesday.
