The Cleveland Indians activated left-hander Andrew Miller from the 60-day disabled list on Friday, the team announced.

Cleveland designated right-hander Zach McAllister for assignment to clear spots on both the 25-man and 40-man rosters.

Miller hasn't pitched for the Indians since May 25 due to soreness in his right knee. He made two rehab appearances for Triple-A Columbus earlier this week.

Miller, 33, also spent time on the DL early in the season due to a hamstring injury.

Miller is 1-3 with a 4.40 ERA in 17 relief appearances this season.

Miller's role will be in flux initially as the Indians acquired another standout left-hander, two-time All-Star Brad Hand, from the San Diego Padres last month.

McAllister, 30, was 1-2 with a 4.97 ERA in 41 appearances out of the bullpen this season. He had been with the Indians since 2011 and went 29-35 with a 3.99 ERA in 277 appearances (68 starts).

The Indians also announced that outfielder Tyler Naquin underwent surgery on his right hip on Thursday. Naquin, who was hitting .264 with three homers and 23 RBIs in 61 games this season, will be out six to 10 weeks.
