In­di­ans ac­ti­vate Guyer, des­ig­nate Cabr­era for as­sign­ment

The Record (Troy, NY) - - SPORTS -

CHICAGO » The Cleve­land In­di­ans have ac­ti­vated out­fielder Bran­don Guyer from the 10day dis­abled list and des­ig­nated Melky Cabr­era for as­sign­ment.

The In­di­ans an­nounced the moves prior to Thurs­day’s game against the Chicago White Sox.

Guyer hit­ting .150 was bat­ting fifth and play­ing right field in his first ap­pear­ance since he strained his neck on May 19. He was hurt in a col­li­sion with a fan while chas­ing a foul ball at Hous­ton.

Cabr­era hit .207 with 11 RBIs in 17 games. With Guyer back and out­fielder Tyler Naquin (strained left ham­string) just about ready to re­turn, man­ager Terry Fran­cona says the In­di­ans “didn’t see a way we were go­ing to be able to keep” him.
