CLEVELAND (AP) _ The Cleveland Indians activated outfielder Karim Garcia on Monday and designated Jose Santiago for assignment.
Garcia, on the disabled list since May 8 with a strained left wrist, hit .267 with six doubles and seven RBIs in 14 games during a rehab assignment at Triple-A Buffalo. Before getting injured, Garcia was hitting .194 with six extra-base hits in 24 games with Cleveland.
Santiago was promoted from Buffalo on Sunday after the Indians played consecutive 15-inning games in Pittsburgh. He did not appear in Sunday's game.
He was 0-1 with a 3.94 ERA in 15 games with Cleveland earlier this season.
