Indians' Michael Brantley: Hitting off tee
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Brantley (shoulder) is continuing to progress in his recovery and is now hitting off a tee, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.

The 29-year-old is still working toward resuming full baseball activities, but this is certainly a positive sign. It appears Brantley is tentatively on track to be ready for spring training as he continues the long road back from shoulder surgery.

Indians' Michael Brantley: Resumes non-contact swinging
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley (shoulder) began taking non-contact swings over the holiday break, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

A September report shed doubt on Brantley's four-month timetable, suggesting he could miss significant time in 2017, but the Indians have been adamant that Brantley will be ready for spring training. He played in just 11 games last season before being shut back down and ultimately undergoing a second shoulder surgery. Brantley turns 30 in May.

Indians' Michael Brantley: To resume hitting after Christmas
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Brantley (shoulder) is expected to resume hitting after Christmas and remains on track to be ready for spring training, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

The 2016 season proved to be quite a disappointment for Brantley, who appeared in only 11 games for the Indians after experiencing several setbacks in his return from shoulder surgery. The talented outfielder will make for an intriguing draft-day gamble, as he possesses the upside to win some fantasy leagues, but also comes with a fair amount of risk due to his recent injury history.

Indians' Michael Brantley: Expects to be ready for spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley (shoulder) is expected to resume baseball activities in December, and the team anticipates that he'll be ready for spring training.

Some reports cropped up that Brantley might miss some of the 2017 season due to his current shoulder ailment, but the Indians are sticking with the expectation that his injury will be a thing of the past in a month or so. That being said, Brantley's status is one to keep an eye on over the offseason, as the rate at which he recovers could determine his availability in the beginning of the season, as well as his ability to play the outfield during the spring.

Indians' Michael Brantley: Could miss significant time in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley, who had shoulder surgery a month ago, could miss significant time next season, Fanrag Sports' Jon Heyman reports.

Per Heyman's report, Brantley's shoulder muscle was re-anchored to the bone -- a serious procedure that could cost him more time than initially believed. In response to Heyman's report, Brantley said, "maybe (Heyman) knows something I don't," according to MLB.com's Jordan Bastian. The Indians maintain that the expected recovery time is four months, which would mean Brantley would be ready for spring training. This is a murky situation that should continue to develop during the offseason, but those who own Brantley in keeper leagues should be aware that he may not be ready for Opening Day next year.
