Indians' Michael Brantley: Opening Day unlikely
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Indians manager Terry Francona acknowledged that it is unlikely Brantley (shoulder) will be ready to rejoin the team's lineup by Opening Day, the Indians' official site reports. "He won't open the season, most likely, with us," Francona said of Brantley. "We'll look at a number of guys. We'll see what fits the best. We'll probably have some platooning going on, especially earlier in the year. There's a number of guys that are coming in [to help]."

A report in December suggested that Brantley was behind schedule in his rehab following offseason shoulder surgery, but the Indians quickly released a statement to shoot that down. With Lonnie Chisenhall already expected to see regular time in right field against right-handed starters, there may be an open competition in spring training for the starts on that side of the platoon in left while Brantley goes through the final stages of his recovery in April. Barring the addition of a left-handed hitting veteran to the outfield mix this spring, Tyler Naquin and James Ramsey could emerge as candidates to work in tandem with Rajai Davis, Joey Butler, and Collin Cowgill.

Indians' Michael Brantley: Remains on original recovery path
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cleveland Indians announced Monday that Michael Brantley is on track in his recovery from shoulder surgery and is not facing an absence longer than originally expected.

A report came out Monday that suggested Brantley could be out until June, but the Indians reiterated that they expect Brantley to need 5-to-6 months to recover from the early November procedure. There is still a chance Brantley will not be ready for Opening Day, but as long as his recovery continues going as planned, he should be back at 100 percent sometime in April or May.

Indians' Michael Brantley: Recovery timetable in question
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Michael Brantley (shoulder) may be held out of games until June, but the Cleveland Indians have disputed that report, according to Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

The report of the longer timetable is from a source close to the situation. Nevertheless, Brantley is coming back from a major shoulder procedure (on his front shoulder) and it's reasonable to err on the side of caution in early drafts at least until there are signs of significant progress in his rehab work.

Indians' Michael Brantley: Undergoes shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Michael Brantley (shoulder) underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder Monday. He's expected to remain out for 5-to-6 months.

Brantley initially injured the shoulder while diving for a ball back on Sept. 22 against the Twins. Initially, he attempted to rehab without surgery, but after seeking a second opinion, it was recommended that he undergo the procedure. Given the 5-to-6-month timetable, Brantley's Opening Day status is in jeopardy, and he's likely to miss at least a small portion of time at the start of the 2016 season.

Shoulder issue ends season for Indians LF Michael Brantley
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cleveland Indians premier outfielder Michael Brantley (shoulder) will miss the remainder of the regular season after receiving a cortisone shot in his shoulder Wednesday, per Jordan Bastian of MLB.com.

Brantley returned to the lineup Sunday and Monday, but will now miss the rest of the year with his team technically alive in the playoff chase.

He should be fine for the start of spring training unless something unforeseen prevents it. He finishes the year with a fine .310/.380/.480 slash line, but lower power numbers than he achieved in 2014.
