From the Indians-

“The Cleveland Indians today announced DH TRAVIS HAFNER has been placed on the 15-day Disabled List (retroactive to August 6) with lower back inflammation. To replace Hafner on the 25-man roster the Indians recalled INF JASON DONALD from Triple-A Columbus.

Hafner begins his second stint on the Major League DL this season and is hitting .239 (48-201) with 6 doubles, 2 triples, 11 home runs and 32 RBI in 60 games (.355OB/.453SLG/ .808OPS). He was previously on the Disabled List from May 24-July 4 after undergoing right knee surgery on May 31.

Donald begins his third stint with Cleveland after opening the season with the club and a brief two-game stint in early July (18G, .188AVG, 9-for-48). With Triple-A Columbus around those two stints he is hitting .277 (71-256) with 18 doubles, 3 triples, 6HR & 31RBI in 65 games (.365OB/.441SLG/.807OPS). Over his last 21 AAA games from July 14-August 7 he hit .341 (30-88) with 19 runs, 10 doubles, 4HR & 13 RBI in 21 games. With Columbus he has hit .317 (19-60) off left-handed pitching (.938OPS) and .318 (41-129) with runners on base. He has appeared in 33 games at short, 10 games at second, 7 at third and 17 games in the outfield (11LF, 6CF). Donald wears #16.”
