Raburn (knee) is expected to return to the lineup Saturday, MLB.com reports.

Raburn had his knee drained following Thursday's early exit and appears to avoided any kind of setback following offseason knee surgery.

Raburn left Thursday's Cactus League game with left knee discomfort, Nick Camino of WTAM 1100 reports.

The initial description doesn't sound too serious, until you remember that Raburn had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in September. He wasn't restricted at the start of spring training but it's still a bit worrisome that the same knee is bothering him. If healthy, Raburn will likely make the Opening Day roster, though he may have his $2.5 million salary to thank for that.

Raburn will enter camp mostly unrestricted but the Indians will monitor his workload early as his knee adjusts to increased volume and intensity, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.It sounds like the team will be cautious with the 33-year-old early on, but Raburn is fully expected to be available for games when the Cactus League slate begins. Raburn has completed his rehab from September arthroscopic surgery.

Raburn (knee) will not face any restrictions at the start of spring training, Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

This doesn't come as a surprise, as a full recovery from September knee surgery was estimated at just 6-to-8 weeks, but it's reassuring nonetheless. Raburn also missed time with neck and wrist injuries last season and struggled mightily when on the field, posting a .547 OPS in 212 plate appearances. He'll have to fight to maintain a roster spot this spring.

Raburn underwent successful arthroscopic knee surgery Friday.

A lateral meniscus tear was repaired during the procedure, and with a full recovery expected in just 6-to-8 weeks, it seems likely Raburn will back to full strength well ahead of spring training. The 33-year-old hit just .200/.250/.297 with four homers in 74 games this season.

Raburn will need surgery on his left knee to repair his damaged meniscus, the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Paul Hoynes reports.

This will effectively end Raburn's season, although there is no official timetable for his recovery. If it's a torn meniscus, he could be sidelined for some time. Either way, owners in most formats should look for other options.

Raburn (knee) is headed back to Cleveland to undergo an MRI, Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Raburn told manager Terry Francona that he was feeling better Tuesday, after reporting little-to-no progress with his hyper-extended knee in the first few days following the injury. The fear still is that his season could be over.

Raburn (knee) is likely headed for an MRI after showing no signs of improvement Monday, MLB.com reports. "We brought him here because if he had a good day and was day-to-day, maybe let him sit for a couple of days and be good," manager Terry Francona said. "But the fact that he came in and was pretty tender, there's no way around it, he has to get looked at."

It's looking more and more likely that Raburn's season may be coming to an end if he's unable to respond to treatment quickly.

Raburn (knee) showed little improvement Sunday and could be headed for an MRI if he doesn't make much progress in the next few days, MLB.com reports. "He won't do anything today other than get treatment, and then we'll kind of see how the next day or so goes. If he starts to improve, that's good. If he doesn't, then we'd probably think about getting him an MRI or something," manager Terry Francona said.

There's a chance that Raburn's season will come to a premature end if he doesn't improve and the MRI shows anything more significant than the hyperextension. Consider him day-to-day for now.
