Michael Brantley (Shoulder) Might be Out Til June

On the last day of September, the Cleveland Indians were out of the Posteason race, so they decided to shut down star outfielder Michael Brantley for the season due to a shoulder injury that had be nagging him for parts of the season.

Brantley underwent a procedure to repair the torn labrum in his right shoulder with the indication that Brantley would be able to return to the team in mid-April.

But now, according to Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, Brantley may not be ready to go until two months into the 2016 season:

We should have a better indication on where Brantley stands in February when Spring Training starts. The 28-year-old Brantley, who will be 29 in May, batted .310 with 15 home runs and 84 runs batted in on the year to go with 15 stolen bases.
