Indians manager Terry Francona said Tuesday that Michael Brantley will play left field and Drew Stubbs will play right field.

Some speculated that Brantley or Stubbs could be on the trade block following the signing of Michael Bourn, but there will be room for all of them in what should be a pretty solid defensive outfield. Nick Swisher will split playing time between first base, right field and the DH spot while Mark Reynolds will see most of his at-bats between the DH spot, first base and third base.
