The Cleveland Indians have activated catcher Lou Marson from the 15-day disabled list (neck).
Marson had been on the disabled list for the first time in his career following a collision with Tampa Bay’s Desmond Jennings at home plate on April 9 in Tampa Bay. He was previously hitless on the season, walking twice in two games.
To make room for Marson on the 25-man roster, the Indians have optioned catcher Yan Gomes to Triple-A Columbus. Gomes was hitting .211 in six games of relief efforts, adding two home runs, a triple and three runs batted in. He also threw out two would-be basestealers and amassed a bit of a cult following amongst Indians fans on Twitter.
