Jack Hannahan Injury Update: Indians 3B Heads To DL Once Again

Some players are ironmen on the field, known for their healthy streaks of games played and started. On the other hand, Jack Hannahan can't catch a break. The Cleveland Indians third baseman can't seem to get healthy in 2012, first hitting the disabled list with back issues earlier this year. Now a strained left calf has him back on the 15-day DL, a move that will keep him away from the Tribe's current series against the Royals.

"It wasn't one situation," Hannahan said. "I just woke up with some discomfort [in the calf] Friday, tried to loosen it up. After Saturday, it bruised up. It was pretty painful."

Hannahan is having more success than ever at the plate despite his limited appearances in 2012. He's batting .276 with a .772 OPS, both numbers the highest he's had since 2007. As expected, Hannahan hopes he can get back soon.

"I guess the only positive of going on the DL is I can get everything right and come back and finished where I left off."
