CLEVELAND, OH – The Cleveland Indians today announced the following decisions relative to the 40-man roster:
Extended a 2018 Qualifying Offer to free agent 1B CARLOS SANTANA (has until Nov. 16 to accept or reject QO).
Activated RHP CODY ANDERSON and RHP DYLAN BAKER from the 60-day Disabled List.

The right-handed hitting catcher enjoyed his best professional season to date in 2017, hitting .258 (86-333) with 17 doubles, 5 triples, 26 home runs, and 59 RBI in 95 games for Double-A Akron. He finished second in the Eastern League in slugging pct. (.574) and OPS (.923) and third in the E.L. in home runs. After spending the last two games of the season in AAA Columbus, his 27 home runs between Columbus and Akron ranked third in the organization as was his season OPS of .930.
