(CLEVELAND) -- Travis Hafner is on the disabled list...again.
Unfortunately it is something Tribe fans have gotten used to over the past several seasons as the DH has been placed on the DL eight different times since 2003.
On Thursday morning Hafner underwent a medial meniscectomy on his right knee at the Cleveland Clinic. The procedure was performed by Drs. Rick Parker and Mark Schickendantz and took 30 minutes.
Hafner is expected to miss four to six weeks due to the surgical procedure. Last week in a win over the Detroit Tigers Hafner fouled a ball off his right knee, however Indians head trainer Lonnie Soloff said his meniscus injury was not due to that foul ball.
The 34-year-old DH is currently hitting .242 for the Indians with six home runs and 23 RBI.
The Tribe is expected to call up a player from Triple-A Columbus to fill the void left by Hafner. The Indians begin a three-game series on Friday at Progressive Field with the Minnesota Twins.
