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.
