On Tuesday afternoon the Indians announced that they have recalled infielder Cord Phelps from Triple-A Columbus and optioned catcher Omir Santos to Columbus.

Phelps began the year on the minor league disabled list with neck stiffness and has appeared in two games for Columbus at second base since his April 14 activation (1-for-8, RS, 2B, RBI, BB).  He is coming off a spring exhibition season where he hit .375 (18-for-48) with 4 doubles, 1 triple, 3 homers and 7 RBI in 23 games (1.143OPS). He will wear #46.

Santos played in one game and had one at bat, and was removed from the 25-man roster because catcher Carlos Santana has been cleared to play and will return to normal catching duties starting in Tuesday night's game against the Red Sox.  Also, with Jason Kipnis still ailing with a sore elbow, the Indians called up Phelps to add an extra bat while he is out. 

The Indians also announced that right-handed pitcher Robert Whitenack cleared waivers and has been outrighted to Double-A Akron. He was placed on waivers last week when the Indians had to remove him from the 40-man roster to add Omir Santos to the roster.
