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.

Cody Anderson’s injury appears to be a sprain rather than a tear, and so Tommy John surgery may not be required.
