Player Notes
Michael Brantley (back) went 1-for-3 in his return to the Indians lineup on Sunday.

Advice: The 27-year-old outfielder had been sidelined for the previous week with back tightness. The team believes that it won't be a recurring issue though and Brantley should be fully healthy and ready to go for Opening Day. While he is unlikely to repeat the gaudy numbers he posted in his breakout 2014 campaign, Brantley still represents one of the best five-category contributors in the league.

Michael Brantley (back) is back in the Indians' lineup Sunday.

Advice: Brantley has been bothered by a back issue a couple times this spring and missed a few games this time around. Still, the Indians appeared to have just been exercising caution here. A breakout star last season, Brantley will be ready to roll on Opening Day if he can avoid setbacks.

Michael Brantley will be sidelined for the next couple of days due to back tightness.

Advice: Brantley was also bothered by back discomfort earlier this spring, but Indians manager Terry Francona told reporters Thursday that there isn't much concern. Brantley, 27, batted .327/.385/.506 with 20 home runs, 97 RBI, 23 stolen bases, and 94 runs scored in 156 games last season. He ranks sixth among all MLB outfielders in our 2015 Rotoworld Draft Guide.
