Indians activate Kazmir from DL to start Saturday
Kazmir has been on the DL with an abdominal strain. Saturday's game will be his first major league start since April 3, 2011. He made one rehabilitation start and allowed five hits and one run -- none earned -- in five innings.
The Indians optioned infielder Cord Phelps to Triple-A Columbus to make room for Kazmir on the roster.
Also on Saturday, manager Terry Francona said that starter Brett Myers would fly back to Cleveland on Sunday to have tests down on his forearm. Myers lost Friday night's game and said after the game that he has been struggling with tendinitis in his throwing arm this season.
