Indians Hafner starts rehab stint with Akron Aeros


Cleveland Indians designated hitter Travis Hafner will begin his rehab assignment with the Double-A Akron Aeros, as he recovers from an injured side muscle.

While the team was in the Bronx taking on the Yankees, Hafner ran the bases and took batting practice.

The Indians have only won two of their past 11 games, could use Hafner in the middle of their order. Before his injury, he was hitting .345 with five homers and 22 RBI’s in 32 games.

Hafner, one of the few veterans on a rather young team, has been on the diasbled list since May 20 with a strained oblique. He’ll be in the Akron lineup while they’re hosting New Hampshire, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. If all goes well, Hafner could rejoin the Indians when they return home to play the Pittsburgh Pirates as interleague action heats up again.

In his first game with the Aeros on Tuesday night, Hafner was 1-for-2 with a walk and a run scored in a 7-2 loss to the New Hampshire Fisher Cats.

David Ortiz, the Boston Red Sox ultra-successful designated hitter, has been named the American League Player of the Week for the week ending June 5.

In six games during the week, the four-time Louisville Slugger Silver Slugger Award winner hit .545 (12-for-22) with four doubles, two home runs, six RBI’s and five runs scored on his way to joining teammates Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford as the third Red Sox player in a four-week span to garner A.L. Player of the Week honors.

The 15-year veteran finished tied for first in the A.L. in doubles and total bases (22), was second in batting average, slugging percentage (1.000) and on-base percentage (.583) and was tied for second in the league in hits.

The native of the Dominican Republic finished the month of May with a club-leading .342 (38-for-111) batting average with nine doubles, 10 home runs and 16 RBI’s to help Boston get back into the American League East race and challenge the Yankees and Rays.

This is Ortiz’s fifth career weekly honor, his last being on August 26, 2007.

Indians make room for Nick Johnson; could be ready for stretch run

The Cleveland Indians have made room at Triple-A Columbus for former Yankees first baseman Nick Johnson. By doing so, the Tribe released infielder Wes Hodges.

Johnson signed a minor league contract with the Indians in February. He will split time with the Clippers and Double-A Akron, depending on who is playing at home.

Johnson, a career .270 hitter, had offseason surgery on his right wrist and Cleveland feels that he can help them during the stretch drive, but he needs to get several at bats before he is added to the 40-man roster.

Johnson played for Indians manager Manny Acta in Washington.
