Shin-Soo ChooBy C. Trent Rosecrans

The Indians welcome back one outfielder and say goodbye to another, announcing on Twitter that they've activated Shin-Soo Choo from the disabled list and designated Austin Kearns for assignment.

Choo had been on the disabled list since June 25 with a fractured left thumb. Choo played in two games for Class A Lake County, going hitless in six at-bats. Choo was having a disappointing 2011, hitting .244/.333/.353 with five homers in 72 games this season.

Austin KearnsKearns was a great spring training story. He had a good 2010, hitting .272/.354/.419 in 84 games for the Indians before being traded to the Yankees for the stretch run. After the season, Kearns was a free agent and returned to the team that gave him a chance, Cleveland.

However, Kearns just wasn't the same in 2011. The 31-year-old former first-round pick was hitting .200/.302/.287 in 57 games for the Indians with just two home runs.
