With rosters expanding from 25 to 40 today, according to agent Josh Kusnick the Indians have purchased the contract of Triple-A Columbus outfielder Michael Brantley and added him to the active roster. As noted earlier, Triple-A Columbus right-handed starter Carlos Carrasco will also be added today and make his major league debut against Detroit.

Brantley's callup now suggests that DH Travis Hafner may be shutdown for the rest of the season or play sparingly, thus allowing center fielder Grady Sizemore to be moved to DH the rest of the month or even being shut down himself.

No word yet on any other potential callups today, but the Indians are expected to have just a few players added to the roster today and then will have another set of players added when Columbus' season ends on Monday September 7th. Catcher Lou Marson will surely be added, though it is not sure if that will happen today or in the next wave. Also, right-hander Hector Rondon is most likely not going to be added to the roster, but will likely still spend some time in Cleveland once the Columbus season ends.
