Ryan Raburn LF/RF.. CLE 19 Hrs
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.

Ryan Raburn went 0-for-3 before being lifted for a pinch-hitter on Wednesday.
Raburn would supposed to get considerable playing time against righties in addition to his duties against lefties, particularly once Carlos Santana won the third base job. However, his slow start, combined with Lonnie Chisenhall's much better one, has changed that in a hurry. He'll likely be limited to starting against southpaws until he heats up and maybe even afterwards.

Ryan Raburn went 3-for-4 and drove in four runs in the Indians' 16-4 drubbing of the Padres on Friday.
Between DHing and playing some right field against lefties, Raburn could be a fixture in the Indians' early season lineup. Giving him a chance to prove 2013 was no fluke isn't a bad idea. That said, the Indians will likely prove better off playing Lonnie Chisenhall over him against righties.
