CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland Indians designated hitter Travis Hafner might need season-ending surgery on his right foot.

Indians trainer Lonnie Soloff said Tuesday that surgery is among the options the team is exploring for Hafner, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday. He is wearing a walking boot after an MRI showed a strained tendon in the bottom of the foot.

Soloff said a decision would be made in the next two days.

Hafner has been playing with pain since injuring the foot on a slide in April. He aggravated the injury running the bases Sunday against Detroit after getting a single, a hit that broke an 0-for-16 slump.

Hafner is hitting .281 with 11 homers and 49 RBIs in 82 games.
