Indians President Chris Antonetti Says OF Michael Brantley To Take Swings in Late December

Today is the official kickoff of the MLB Winter Meetings taking place in Maryland, and Indians President Chris Antonetti spoke to local reporters on hand, and one topic discussed was the health of outfielder Michael Brantley.

The Tribe outfielder played in just 11 games last season for the American League Champions, and struggled all season trying to get back on the field, something he never did for the Indians after May 9th.

The team is hoping he will be back and ready to go in 2016, and today reporter Paul Hoynes gave some insight Brantley’s condition.

Taking swings before the New Year is a great sign considering last season he wasn’t able to do much before spring training and started the season watching instead of playing.

Having Brantley back would be a huge boost for the Indians, and it would give them another weapon in the outfield that shuffled players in and out this past season.
