Brantley's Bat Crucial to Cleveland Offense 

Brantley is one of the Indians' most dangerous hitters. He's steadily developed into a consistent offensive force since breaking into the big leagues in 2009. Now in his prime, he typically provides Cleveland with All-Star-level production across the board.

He suffered a shoulder injury during the latter stages of last season, which forced him to undergo surgery for a torn labrum. It's the type of issue that needed a chance to fully heal.
