FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY NEWS: MICHAEL BRANTLEY (SHOULDER) GETS ANTI-INFLAMMATORY SHOT

Cleveland Indians outfielder Michael Brantley took an anti-inflammatory shot to his injured shoulder after he was placed on the disabled list for the second time this season.  Brantley was back for only a few weeks after missing two weeks of April recovering from winter surgery on the shoulder.  No structural issues have been found in the shoulder and the expectation is that Brantley could return sometime at or soon after his DL stint ends. 

Analysis:  Clearly Brantley came back too early from the shoulder as the original timeline of him being out until May was in hindsight the better course of action.  Now Brantley is paying the price of his early return and he had zero home runs and an ugly average before his second DL stint.  Either way Brantley's 2016 season is looking like it could be nothing short of a disaster.
