Andy Marte is back and Matt LaPorta is headed to Class AAA Columbus.
The Indians announced today that infielder Marte has been activated from the disabled list. He was placed on the disabled list on May 15 with an infected ingrown hair on his stomach.
LaPorta was hitting .218 (26-119) with four doubles, one homer and seven RBI in 35 games. He was coming of surgery on his left big toe and left hip in the offseason.
