Shin-Soo Choo has proven to be a quick healer. The Indians are now hoping their star right fielder can enjoy a swift recovery in the batter's box.

On Friday, Cleveland activated Choo was the 15-day disabled list nearly two weeks ahead of his initial rehabilitation timeline. He was coming back from a displaced fracture on his left thumb and tested his pain threshold in a recent Minor League rehab stint.

"So far, he hasn't shown any issue with anything," Indians manager Manny Acta said on Wednesday. "Right now, it's about timing and reacting to pitches inside if he gets jammed, if it hurts him or not."
