CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Indians have activated catcher Yan Gomes, who has been out with a sprained right knee, from the 15-day disabled list.

Gomes is starting behind the plate and batting seventh Sunday against Cincinnati.

Gomes was injured on April 11 when he attempted to catch a throw home on a slide by Detroit's Rajai Davis. Gomes had his right foot on the plate and Davis slid into his leg, causing the injury.

The Indians said at the time that Gomes was expected to miss about six weeks. He completed a minor league rehab assignment Friday.

Gomes is batting .150 in five games. He hit .278 with 21 homers and 74 RBIs last season.

Catcher Brett Hayes was designated for assignment.
