CLEVELAND (AP) - Indians outfielder Ezequiel Carrera has been optioned to Triple-A Columbus, a move made to clear the way for Grady Sizemore’s return from the disabled list.

Carrera was recalled on May 20, and in his first at-bat in the majors dropped a game-winning RBI bunt single as the Indians beat the Cincinnati Reds. In five games, he went 2-for-8 and drove in two runs.

Sizemore is expected to come off the DL at some point in the next few days. He has been sidelined with a bruised right kneecap injured in a hard slide. Sizemore said he felt good running the bases on Wednesday, but the three-time All-Star would not commit to when he would play next.

Sizemore missed most of last season after undergoing microfracture surgery on his left knee.

The Indians are off Thursday. They open a three-game series at Tampa Bay on Friday.
