    • 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.

    • Manager Terry Francona said Brantley has a mild sprained right ankle and will undergo treatment Wednesday, though a DL stint remains a possibility. Brantley was lifted from Tuesday's game against the Rockies with the injury and a subsequent MRI revealed it wasn't too significant. Nonetheless, the outfielder missed time earlier this season with a similar injury, so trainers will see how it responds to certain medical evaluation before setting forth a firm recovery plan. The Indians have a wide range of options to replace Brantley should he land on the DL, including Brandon Guyer and Abraham Almonte. Cleveland will go with Almonte in left field for the series finale with Colorado on Wednesday.

    • Brantley avoided an Achilles injury, but he's scheduled for an MRI on his ankle Tuesday night, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Brantley initially thought it was his Achilles that got hurt, but luckily trainers ruled that out. Ankle injuries typically require less recovery time, but of course that depends on the severity, and that information should be available Wednesday morning. Brantley landed on the DL with a sprained ankle in mid-June.

    • Brantley exited Tuesday's game against the Rockies with a sprained right ankle, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Brantley suffered the ankle sprain while backing up a play in the outfield. The 30-year-old made a trip to the disabled list earlier this season with the same injury, so it's likely that he'll be headed back to the DL. The severity of the sprain will determine how long Brantley will be sidelined, though that information has yet to be revealed. We'll await an official announcement from the Indians with regards to his condition.
