In the last three games the AL Central-leading Indians have lost DH Travis Hafner, catcher Carlos Santana and shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera to injuries. That's not a good thing.

Santana was placed on the seven-day disabled list before Saturday's game against Chicago with a slight concussion. He was hit in the mask by an Alex Rios foul tip Friday in the eighth inning and had to leave the game because of dizziness.

The Indians purchased the contract of catcher Luke Carlin from Class AAA Columbus. He joined the club early Saturday. Left-hander Rafael Perez (left lat) was moved to the 60-day disabled list to make room for Carlin on the 40-man roster.

Perez is still eligible to come off the disabled list on June 25.

So in three games, the Indians have lost their No.3 hitter (Cabrera), No. 4 hitter (Hafner) and No. 5 hitter (Santana).
