    • Brantley (ankle) will remain shut down from all running activity for another 7-to-10 days, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. A recent visit to a foot and ankle specialist yielded a more definitive diagnosis; Brantley has a deltoid ligament sprain in addition to right ankle synovitis. He will be re-evaluated in a week or so. Brantley's not going to be ready in time to help fantasy players, but there's still a chance he could return in the postseason if the Indians make a deep enough run. The 30-year-old fared well when on the field, hitting .299/.358/.445, but he's been limited to just 99 games over the past two seasons due to injuries.

    • Team president Chris Antonetti said there is still no clarity on whether Michael Brantley (ankle) will return this season, The Associated Press reports. Brantley was sidelined on Aug. 9 with a sprained ankle, and recovery has moved slower than expected. Though the injury was initially thought to be minor, it's become apparent the outfielder's ailment is a more serious than what was originally diagnosed. Until Brantley is ready to return, Austin Jackson and Brandon Guyer will continue splitting the extra at-bats.

    • Brantley (ankle) is still not able to run on flat ground, Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. He is running on a non-weight bearing treadmill and will be evaluated next week to see what the next step is. Brantley is already throwing and hitting without issue. He has been on the DL twice with the same ankle injury, and should be considered out indefinitely.

    • Indians' Michael Brantley: Still not running
      By RotoWire Staff

      Brantley (ankle) has yet to begin running since landing on the disabled list. Brantley, who has been on the DL since Aug. 9, has been able to participate in baseball activities, albeit at a limited capacity due to his inability to run. Until he's ready to return, Austin Jackson and Brandon Guyer will likely see time in the Cleveland outfield.

    • Indians' Michael Brantley: Lands on DL
      By RotoWire Staff

      Brantley was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday with a sprained right ankle, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. The All-Star outfielder heads to the DL with a right ankle injury for the second time in the last two months, though trainers have already deemed the sprain to be a mild one, so he could be back as soon as next weekend's series in Kansas City. Brantley, who suffered the sprain during Tuesday's game against the Rockies, is hitting .282 with 15 RBI since the All-Star break and likely gives way to Brandon Guyer or Abraham Almonte while he remains sidelined. Erik Gonzalez, another outfield option, was recalled from Triple-A to take his spot on the active roster.
