Indians' Michael Brantley: Lands on DL with ankle sprain
Brantley was placed on the 10-day disabled list Monday with a sprained right ankle.
Brantley didn't play in any of the Indians' last five games while he was away from the team following the birth of his child, but the time off wasn't enough to remedy the soreness he was experiencing in his ankle, which he first sprained earlier in the month in Kansas City. It's not believed to be a significant setback for the outfielder, who could rejoin the Tribe when first eligible Sunday if the soreness subsides as expected. In the meantime, Brantley's absence will likely open up some extra at-bats for the likes of Austin Jackson and Daniel Robertson.
