  • Michael Brantley Still Hasn't Resumed Swinging

    Houston Astros outfielder Michael Brantley (shoulder) hasn't resumed swinging a bat and said he has "no timetable" for a return from the injured list. "I don't want to put a timetable on that because then I don't know if it's pushing too hard or not pushing hard enough. It's literally day by day," Brantley said. The 35-year-old veteran outfielder landed on the injured list on June 28 and doesn't appear to be anywhere close to returning to the major league roster. At this point, a return before September might be optimistic. The addition of veteran slugger Trey Mancini at the trade deadline should help soften the blow with Brantley out. In 243 at-bats before his injury, Brantley was hitting a solid .288/.370/.416 with five homers, 26 RBI, 28 runs scored and a stolen base.

  • Michael Brantley Still Yet To Swing A Bat

    Houston Astros outfielder Michael Brantley (shoulder) has yet to begin swinging a bat, according to Astros manager Dusty Baker. Brantley has been sidelined since late June due to right shoulder discomfort. His timeline is undefined right now as he still has several hurdles to clear before returning to the majors. The 35-year-old has turned in another solid season for the Astros thus far. Over 64 games, he's slashed .288/.370/.416 with five home runs, 26 RBI and 28 runs.
