Indians' Michael Brantley (back) unlikely to play Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Indians left fielder Michael Brantley is unlikely to play Wednesday afternoon against the White Sox, FOX Sports Ohio reports.

"I think he's really trending in a good way," manager Terry Francona said, per MLB.com. "If you see him playing tomorrow, he's perfect. Because, with the day off [Thursday], we want to make sure we get him going in the right direction and keep him going in the right direction."

Brantley, who is dealing with a back injury, is going through a full workout Tuesday. It's possible he'll be ready to return after Thursday's off day. The outfielder has played in just two games, going 1 for 8 at the plate.

Indians' Michael Brantley, Lonnie Chisenhall out of the lineup Tuesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Indians outfielder Michael Brantley and third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall are out of the starting lineup Tuesday, but are available to come off the bench, the team announced.

Brantley, who is dealing with a back injury, has played just two games this season while battling the injury. Jerry Sands will fill in for Brantley in left field. Chisenhall has started all six games for Cleveland at third so far this season and will get the day off. He will be replaced by Mike Aviles, who will bat second.

The Indians are currently the favorites (-127) over the White Sox.
