Indians Injury Update: Ryan Raburn could be done for season

By on 9/15/2014 11:00:00 AM

The Cleveland Indians fell to the Detroit Tigers on Sunday by the score of 6-4. The loss dropped the Indians to 76-72 on the season, third in the American League Central. Having been swept by the Tigers, the Indians have fallen out of the divisional race and are five games back in the wild card race. On the injury front, Ryan Raburn could be done for the season with a knee injury.

Our own Darius Austin reported yesterday that Raburn left Saturday night's game in the fourth inning with a hyperextended knee.

An update on Raburn, as reported by Jordan Bastian of, is that Raburn could possibly be done for the season. Manager Terry Francona said that Raburn was day-to-day. He will be examined in the next few days if symptoms do not improve.

Raburn was swinging the bat well the night of the injury, so it's a disappointment to the team and to Raburn.  Francona knows when Raburn is swinging the bat well, he provides a big boost to the team.
"What I was really excited about was he swung the bat the other night like he can swing it. That gives us a big lift. I know he's disappointed, but we'll get him looked at and not try to get ahead of ourselves, and just make sure he's OK."
Raburn, in his ninth Major League season, is batting .200 with four home runs and 22 RBI this season.  The veteran has played for the Tigers and the Indians and is a career .253 hitter with 74 home runs and 293 RBI.
