Indians' Michael Brantley: Questionable for Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley (ankle) is behind other outfielders and is questionable for Opening Day, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Brantley, who underwent surgery on his ankle in October, has taken part in loss toss and some limited hitting in the cages, but is limited to straight-ahead jogging for now. The Indians will continue to evaluate Brantley as he tests out the ankle during training camp, so he could still be ready for the start of the season, but president of baseball operations Chris Antonetti said the team is taking a longer-view approach, one that gets Cleveland "the best version of Michael Brantley for as much of the season as possible."

Indians' Rajai Davis: Signs minor-league deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis has agreed to a minor-league deal with the Indians that includes an invitation to spring training, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Davis, who is probably best known for the home run he hit off Aroldis Chapman as a member of the Indians in the 2016 World Series, is entering his age-37 season and his career seems to be winding down. He spent most of last year with the A's before finishing the season with a 17-game run with the Red Sox. He was exactly a replacement-level player over that span (0.0 fWAR), as he is no longer a defensive asset and hit just .235/.293/.348. His top skill remains his ability to steal bases -- he stole 29 bags on 36 attempts in just 366 plate appearances last season. That speed makes him useful in fantasy leagues as long as he's seeing semi-regular playing time. However, he will face an uphill battle in that regard this season. Tyler Naquin, Mevlin Upton and Greg Allen will also be competing for a bench outfielder role during spring training.

Indians' Brandon Guyer: Cleared to throw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guyer (wrist) has been cleared for all throwing and outfield work, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Guyer is progressing well from October wrist surgery, though he still hasn't been cleared to resume hitting and his status for Opening Day remains in doubt. He'll be reevaluated next week, at which point a clearer timetable will hopefully emerge. Even if Guyer were to be sidelined for the start of the season, the Indians are expecting him to be available for the majority of the campaign.

Indians' Adam Plutko: Progressing on schedule
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Plutko has resumed throwing bullpen sessions following a surgical procedure on his hip in October, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Plutko remains on schedule for a return to game activity around the beginning of March. The right-hander spent the 2017 season with Triple-A Columbus, posting a 5.90 ERA and 1.52 WHIP over 135.2 innings as a starter. He will likely serve as organizational depth for this upcoming campaign, although it's expected that he will be back down with Columbus to start the year.

Indians' Danny Salazar: Experienced relapse of shoulder issues in January
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Salazar is behind the rest of the Indians' pitchers due to an offseason onset of his previous right shoulder inflammation, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

The right-hander is feeling fine now and is back to throwing, but it's certainly concerning given his injury issues the past two seasons. The relapse of inflammation reportedly came back in January, so it seems like something the team identified early on and treated well ahead of spring training. This is something worth monitoring during Cactus League play, however, as Cleveland could opt to play things safe given how poorly Salazar's shoulder held up the past two seasons.
