Indians DH Travis Hafner is unlikely to be limited during the 2010 season, according to manager Manny Acta. "We're going to get together with our medical staff and the conditioning staff to put a plan in place," Acta said. "But that being said, our plan is that he's going to get days off here and there, but nothing as he was in the past, where he couldn't play a certain amount of games in a row." More than a year removed from arthroscopic right shoulder surgery, Hafner expects to have no playing time restrictions in 2010. Last season, he played more than three days in a row just once, by design. He batted .272 in 338 at-bats with 16 home runs and 49 RBI.
i'm hoping for one last run from Pronk!
