Shin-Soo Choo
The Indians have activated outfielder Shin-Soo Choo from the 15-day disabled list today. He had been on the disabled list since June 25th after suffering a fractured left thumb after being hit by a pitch the night before in San Francisco. He underwent surgery on the thumb on June 28th in Cleveland by Dr. Thomas Graham.

Choo made a three game rehab assignment at Low-A Lake County this past week where in three games he went 0-for-8. After playing a full game last night without any setbacks, the Indians deemed him ready. In 72 games prior to the injury he was hitting .244 (65-266) with 10 doubles, 2 triples, 5 homers, 28 RBI and 11 steals.

To allow room on the 25-man roster the Indians designated outfielder Austin Kearns for assignment. He hit .200 (30-150) in 57 games for the Indians this year after signing a one-year free agent contract with the club in the offseason.
