Gerut activated

The Indians activated Jody Gerut from the 15-day DL Friday and optioned him to AAA Buffalo. Don’t expect to see him there long, though — the lineup could use a shot in the arm and while Gerut’s no superstar, some new blood may revive the entire lineup.

The question, though, is who gets demoted once Gerut is called up. There have been some whispers that the Tribe is considering sending Aaron Boone down but unless he’s still hitting .120 in June or July, that’s not likely going to happen. Ryan Ludwick doesn’t have any options left so he’s probably not going anywhere. I guess that leaves Grady Sizemore as the odd man out, unless Shapiro wants to send Jhonny Peralta to AAA and hand the starting job at short to Alex Cora, but Peralta’s bat has finally shown some signs of life so he’s probably staying put as well. Of course, it’ll get real interesting once Juan Gonzalez returns.
