CLEVELAND Indians designated hitter Travis Hafner was placed on the disabled list Wednesday with a sore right shoulder, an injury that limited him to 57 games last season.
Hafner had surgery on the shoulder in October. He is batting .270 with four homers and eight RBIs in 17 games.
He s been having some soreness and a little fatigue, manager Eric Wedge said. We ve noticed it in his swing the last three or four days. We don t think it s anything serious.
Hafner will visit Dr. James Andrews, who performed the surgery, next week in Birmingham, Ala.
Hafner batted .197 with five homers and 24 RBIs last season. He was on the DL from May 26-Sept. 8.
