Michael Brantley Injury Update: Indians' OF To Miss 3-5 Days With Tight Hamstring

Cleveland Indians outfielder Michael Brantley was forced to leave Monday's spring training game against the Dodgers due to soreness in his hamstring. Luckily, it doesn't appear to be any worse than initially conceived, but according to Cleveland AP writer Tom Withers, he's going to be out at least a few more days until fully healthy:

Indians are clearly being cautious here. After hitting .266/.318/.702 last year in his most action in the big leagues, Brantley is expected to be a starting outfielder in place of Grady Sizemore, who is believed to start the season on the disabled list.
