Brantley (leg) is in the Indians' lineup Thursday against the Reds.

While Brantley stayed in Wednesday's game initially after appearing to hurt his leg in the third inning, he was ultimately removed as part of a double switch in the seventh. Manager Terry Francona downplayed the issue afterward, saying, "He's OK. I just think he's been on his legs a lot," and Brantley's inclusion in Thursday's lineup suggests his removal was indeed precautionary.
