The Cleveland Indians have activated infielder-slash-catcher Carlos Santana from the seven-day concussion disabled list and he will play in the team's game Friday night as a designated hitter.

Santana spent almost two weeks on the disabled list as the result of a concussion sustained by a foul tip to the mask while behind the plate. The injury was originally believed to be an illness, but the team later placed the utility man on the seven-day list created specifically for head injuries.

In his fifth season with Cleveland Santana has six home runs and is hitting .159, with an OBP of .327.
