Michael Brantley Transferred to 60-Day DL
this morning, on July 3, it was announced in a press release on indians.com that Michael Brantley was transferred from the 15-Day DL to the 60-Day DL in order to make room for Abraham Almonte–who was just reinstated from the restricted list–on the 40-man roster. this was only a paper move and does not change anything per a tweet from Jordan Bastian. Terry Francona also commented, “there’s no hidden flags there.” Michael’s new placement on the disabled list is still retroactive to May 9, and he’s eligible for activation on July 9 according to Bastian‘s indians.com article. however, Michael is still a ways away from returning.
