Brantley Back In Lineup But Kipnis Still Out For Indians

Michael Brantley is back in the Indians' starting lineup for the first time since last Tuesday, but Jason Kipnis -- who has not played since Friday -- is still out as the Tribe and the White Sox play the first of three games in Chicago this evening.

Jason Donald got the start at second in place of Kipnis, while Brantley is patrolling left field, with Kosuke Fukudome in center and Shin-Soo Choo in right.

Kipnis is suffering from a sore right oblique muscle, and is day-to-day, while Brantley is back after having inflammation in his right wrist.
