Michael Brantley LF/CF CLE Dec 06 '78

Michael Brantley was spiked on the left forearm Monday and had to be given stitches.

"He'll be fine," manager Terry Francona told reporters. Brantley will probably be given a couple days off but should easily make a full recovery. He hit .288/.348/.402 with six homers, 12 steals and 60 RBI in 149 games last season, and makes for a good third fantasy outfielder.
