Lou Marson injury: Indians place catcher on DL

David Richard-US PRESSWIRE

The Cleveland Indians have placed catcher Lou Marson on the disabled list with a cervical neck strain.

The Cleveland Indians have placed catcher Lou Marson on the disabled list with a cervical neck strain, the team has announced.

More Indians: The Big Buzzkill

To replace Marson on their roster, the Indians have recalled backstop Yan Gomes from Triple-A. Considering Carlos Santana is day-to-day with his finger injury, Gomes will be in the lineup tonight and batting ninth. It looks like Santana could be required to miss more than just tonight's contest, as the Tribe has also recalled Omir Santos from Triple-A.

Marson suffered his injury over the weekend when Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Desmond Jennings collided with him during a play at the plate.

Cleveland acquired Marson from the Philadelphia Phillies in 2009 in the Cliff Lee trade. He's spent time at the majors with the club since that season, but he never developed into the regular option behind the plate the Indians envisioned.

Marson hit .226/.348/.287 with eight doubles and two triples over 235 plate appearances last season. Over parts of six years in the majors, he owns a career batting line of .220/.310/.301.
