Indians remain cautious with injured Choo

CLEVELAND -- The Indians continue to take a cautious approach with right fielder Shin-Soo Choo in his recovery from a mild left hamstring strain.

On Saturday morning, Cleveland manager Manny Acta indicated that Choo would test his ailing leg with some running drills on Sunday. If the outfielder comes away without any lingering issues, he could return to the lineup by Tuesday.

"He's still feeling something there," Acta said. "That's the report we've gotten from the training staff. We wouldn't be holding anybody back here."

Choo, who has hit .237 with five doubles and nine RBIs through 15 games, left Tuesday's game in the eighth inning due to soreness in his left hamstring. He has been absent from the Tribe's starting lineup in the four days since suffering the injury. Acta noted that the rainy conditions on Saturday were not ideal for having Choo test out his legs with running.

The Indians have an off-day on Monday before opening a three-game series against the White Sox in Chicago on Tuesday.
