LeVon Washington back with the Captains -- again

The following line has repeated itself too often:

Outfielder LeVon Washington has rejoined the Lake County Captains.

The Indians 2010 second-round draft pick will be activated for the Captains' series at Great Lakes. The three-game series begins Saturday.

Washington pulled his hamstring in the season opener against Lansing. He missed three weeks and rejoined the team for 21 games before going on the disabled list again. Washington was hitting .351 when he went to Arizona to begin yet another rehab process.

Washington, who turned 22 on Friday,  appeared in just 13 games last season because of a hip injury that required surgery. Washington first joined the Captains on May 6, 2011. The 2011 season marked his longest as a professional as he hit .218 with four homers and 20 RBI in 79 games.

The Indians invested $1 million into Washington. The injuries are making it difficult for the organization to evaluate Washington, who once ranked among the Indians' top 10 prospects.
