Indians' Matt Treanor to miss 2-3 weeks

The Cleveland Indians took a hit to their catching depth.

Northeast Ohio Media Group’s Paul Hoynes reports that Matt Treanor suffered a hamstring injury and will miss two to three weeks of playing time. Currently, the Indians have Yan Gomes as their primary backstop and could use Carlos Santana, but the team has been hoping that Santana could man third base for them on a more than part time basis.

Treanor, who last played in the majors in 2012 for the Dodgers, was third on the depth chart as far as Cleveland’s catching situation went. He only played in 36 games for the Dodgers, hitting just .175/.281/.282. He has served as a backup for his whole career.
