Brantley has surgery, Indians weighing options on his future

CLEVELAND (AP) The damaged ligaments in Michael Brantley's right ankle have been stabilized. The All-Star left fielder's future with the Cleveland Indians remains unsteady.

Brantley had surgery to repair an ankle injury that bothered him much of this season, sidelined him for 50 games over the final two months and limited him during the playoffs.

The 30-year-old will need up to five months to recover from the operation, which was performed Wednesday in Charlotte, North Carolina, by Dr. Robert Anderson. Team president Chris Antonetti said the team expects Brantley to "be ready for the start of the season or very close to the start of the season next year."
