Michael Brantley To Open Indians’ 2016 Season On 15-Day DL


he tried to avoid it, but unfortunately it could not be avoided. today, on April 3, the Cleveland Indians announced that Michael Brantley was placed on the 15-day DL as he continues to recover from offseason right shoulder surgery. we’ve all known this was going to happen for some time, but the roster transaction did not become official until now. the good news about his DL stint is it’s retroactive to March 25. that means, if Michael was ready, he could be activated as early as April 9 and would only miss the first week–just 4 games–of April, as opposed to missing the first two weeks or more of the season. while that once seemed like a real possibility, it now doesn’t appear as though he will be back that fast.
