The Indians today announced that catcher Lou Marson was placed on the 15 day DL with a cervical neck strain. He has been suffering since his collision at home plate against the Rays on Saturday. The Indians recalled C YAN GOMES from AAA Columbus and selected the contract of CA OMIR SANTOS from AAA Columbus and added him to the Major League roster. The double move was necessary because of Marson’s injury as well as Carlos Santana’s thumb bruise from late in yesterday’s game- “The Indians received good news a few hours after a left thumb injury forced catcher Carlos Santana from Monday’s 11-6 loss to the Yankees: X-rays taken after the game were negative, revealing that he sustained nothing more than a bruise in the ninth inning of Cleveland’s home opener. The slugging catcher is day to day. Santana got crossed up on a pitch from closer Chris Perez and sustained a contusion after being struck on the thumb while trying to catch the baseball. Santana was in obvious pain and exited the game after being attended to briefly by manager Terry Francona and a team trainer.” [Official site] Good news or not, Santana isn’t playing tonight. Could the move to bring up two catchers be an indicator Santana will miss more than a game or two? Possibly. [Related: Home opener interrupted by the Pronk show]
