Shin-Soo Choo Injury: Indians' Catcher And OF Michael Brantley Day-To-Day

The Cleveland Indians came away from Tuesday night with a 4-3 win against the Kansas City Royals, improving the team to 9-6 on the young season, but they go into Wednesday with a couple of injury concerns, according to team beat writer Jordan Bastian:

Shin-Soo Choo started on Tuesday night (0-for-3 with two strikeouts), but was lifted for a pinch hitter in the eighth inning due to his hamstring.

Michael Brantley came on in the eighth inning on Tuesday as a defensive replacement, although he didn't start the game. While it's encouraging that he is slated to play Wednesday, it has to be worrisome that the injury is to the same wrist he had surgery on in September last season, which forced him to miss the rest of the season.
