The Indians have two designated hitters in Jim Thome and Travis Hafner. They know that Hafner will return in 2012, but Thome will take the offseason to decide. The Indians want the popular Thome back.

Cleveland general manager Chris Antonelli says that the team has talked to Thome about returning. They found out in his return to his original team, the Illinois native can still contribute offensively and still provide leadership to the young players.

Thome has 604 homers in his career which totals 21 years in the Majors. He wants to come back but will discuss it with his family.

Thome and Hafner split time with Hafner as the team’s DH, after “Pronk” returned to the lineup from an injury to his right foot.

The Indians acquired Thome from their AL Central Division rivals, the Minnesota Twins on August 25 to fill-in for Hafner. What the team found out, was both could share the DH role and each would be fresher because not one man was doing the job solo as Hafner had been doing.
