Donaldson activated by Indians, who will skip Kluber’s turn

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Josh Donaldson was activated from the disabled by AL Central-leading Cleveland and set to make his Indians debut Tuesday night at Tampa Bay.

Cleveland also said 18-game winner Corey Kluber will not start this weekend, allowing him to get extra days off and to line him up for the postseason.

Donaldson was acquired from Toronto on Aug. 31. The 2015 AL MVP had not played in the major leagues since May 28 because of a left calf strain.

Jose Ramirez moved from third to second to make room in the field for Donaldson. Jason Kipnis was moved from second to center field.

For the first time, probably, all year we’re getting close to where we have our team and hopefully nothing else happens and we can work towards becoming a team that can be a factor,” Indians manager Terry Francona said.

Donaldson was sidelined from April 11-May 2 with a shoulder problem.

Francona is leaning toward using a four-man playoff rotation.

Kluber allowed four runs in 1 2/3 innings in Monday.

“Barring anything crazy, he can go into a playoff game with one extra days rest, which is what he wants,” Francona said.
