Indians' Michael Brantley: Undergoes ankle surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley will miss the next 4-to-5 months after undergoing right ankle surgery Wednesday, Jordan Bastian of reports.

Although Brantley appeared on the ALDS roster against the Yankees -- and recorded a decent amount of at-bats -- the outfielder needed surgery to stabilize the ligaments in his ankle ahead of next season. This places him on a timetable to optimistically return to full baseball activities right around the start of spring training. Cleveland also needs to decide whether to pick up his $12 million club option for 2018, or buy him out for $1 million, which will have to be decided three days after the World Series concludes.

Indians' Michael Brantley: Heads to bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brantley is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Yankees for Game 5 of the ALDS.

With Edwin Encarnacion back in the lineup after missing a couple games due to an ankle injury, Brantley will occupy a spot on the bench as CC Sabathia takes the mound for New York. Brantley may enter the fray at some point during Wednesday's game, but it appears as though he will remain in a reserve role throughout the rest of the playoffs as long as the regulars stay healthy.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Encarnacion (ankle) is back in the lineup for Game 5 of the ALDS against the Yankees on Wednesday.

Encarnacion missed the last two games while dealing with a bad-looking sprained ankle that he suffered in Game 2, but will return to the lineup for the decisive final contest of the series. He will bat cleanup while manning the DH spot against CC Sabathia and the Yankees.

Indians' Giovanny Urshela: Dealing with soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela is experiencing soreness after taking a liner off his left leg during Game 4 of the ALDS on Monday, Jordan Bastian of reports.

The injury isn't thought to be anything overly serious, but it could force Urshela to miss the Indians' decisive Game 5 against the Yankees on Wednesday. If Urshela is unable to play, the Indians would likely push Jose Ramirez to third base and turn to either Jason Kipnis or Erik Gonzalez to take over at the keystone.
