2017 FANTASY BASEBALL BRIEF: MICHAEL BRANTLEY (SHOULDER) SET TO MAKE SPRING DEBUT

A big day is on tap for Cleveland Indians outfielder Michael Brantley on Monday as he is set to make his long-waited spring training debut for the team.  Brantley of course is coming back from a second shoulder surgery which has sent his fantasy baseball stock for the 2017 season plummeting to late round territory.  Having been handles with kid gloves to this point, Brantley has not suffered any sort of setbacks which is a very positive development considering all the trouble he has had the last two years.  There is the chance for supreme value here as Brantley is one of the better pure hitters in the game with enough power and speed to be a 15/15 guy.  Yes I have been a big critic of Brantley in the past but that was when he was ridiculously being graded as an OF 1.  With his stock dropping so low, I am now interested in Brantley again like I was with Mark Trumbo a year ago which paid off nicely. The same setup is in play here so Brantley should be targeted in all fantasy baseball leagues.
