  • Michael Brantley (ankle) has been cleared for throwing and light hitting activity.<p><b>Advice</b>: Brantley underwent surgery last October to stabilize the ligaments in his right ankle and he is questionable for the start of the 2018 regular season. The big test will be running and he's a couple weeks away from ramping things up in that department. If he is not ready, Lonnie Chisenhall, Abraham Almonte, Tyler Naquin, and Melvin Upton Jr. would be in the mix for starts in left field to open the year.
