Good news abounds. Michael Brantley set foot on a baseball field and conducted baseball-like activity without imploding. Cody Anderson may have only a UCL sprain and not a tear. Trevor Bauer has another new pitch. And, probably most importantly, it appears that T. J. House will be okay.
Pretty soon, catching Trevor Bauer will require catchers to use both hands to call the pitch. Apparently, Bauer now also has a splitter.
Cody Anderson’s injury appears to be a sprain rather than a tear, and so Tommy John surgery may not be required.
Michael Brantley played a five-inning simulated game with a glove and everything and did not spontaneously combust.
