Player Notes
Michael Brantley (shoulder) said he is "very confident" he can still impact the Indians this season.

Advice: Brantley has been hitting in the cage for the past couple of days and is apparently feeling good. He underwent surgery earlier this month to remove scar tissue from his right biceps tendon, near the right shoulder that required major surgery last November. The star outfielder has been limited to 11 major league games in 2016.

Michael Brantley has undergone surgery to remove scar tissue from his right biceps tendon.

Advice: Brantley hasn't been able to shake his nagging shoulder issues following last October's operation, but if he's only dealing with a scar tissue build-up that's probably a best-case scenario. He's expected to be ready to resume baseball activities sometime next week. It's unclear when he might make it back with the Indians.

Indians manager Terry Francona said Tuesday that Michael Brantley is feeling discomfort again in his surgically-repaired right shoulder.

Advice: Brantley feels it at the end of his swing, which is obviously a serious problem. The outfielder will undergo an enhanced image exam on Wednesday as the Indians try to gather more information about this latest setback. Brantley has been limited to 11 major league games this season and probably won't be returning anytime soon. He had recently shifted his minor league rehab assignment from Double-A Akron to Triple-A Columbus, putting him one step away from Cleveland.

Indians manager Terry Francona said that Michael Brantley (shoulder) has an off-day of his minor league rehab assignment on Monday.

Advice: Brantley is 3-for-12 (.250) with one double and one walk through four games during his rehab stint, though he has yet to play back-to-back games. He's scheduled to meet with trainers to discuss the next step. More should be known on Tuesday.
