Cleveland Indians backup catcher Lou Marson was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday with a neck strain, and catcher Yan Gomes was recalled from Triple-A Columbus.
The Indians also selected the contract of catcher Omir Santos from Triple-A and added him to the Major League roster.
Marson was hurt in a collision at home plate Saturday in Tampa Bay. Gomes has appeared in four games with Columbus.
Santos appeared in 17 games this spring, and batted .375 with four doubles and a home run.
