Michael Brantley’s February 2017 Hitting Progressions (Pre-Spring Games)
Indians spring training games begin tomorrow! finally, the boys are back in action! well, all except one. sadly, Michael Brantley is not ready to play in spring games yet because the team is being extra careful with him and taking his rehab slowly. so as we wait for Michael to get the all clear, i thought i’d post an updates blog with details about his February hitting progressions–from tee work to batting practice!–prior to Cactus League games. there are a lot of photos of Michael in here, too!👍
and, in an unprecedented twist, FIVE different baseball writers published false information regarding Michael this month. not on purpose, of course, but it’s quite astonishing that so many people would make mistakes within a similar time period and in relation to the same player. for three of these guys especially, that’s a rarity because they are typically my most credible sources when it comes to all things Tribe. nevertheless, i called attention to those faux pas, as you would expect, and then corrected them, as you will soon discover.
