Masahiro Tanaka is playing catch again on the field Friday with Larry Rothschild.
Playing catch is all well and good but the real progress in his recovery won't be seen until he starts throwing from a mound. Right now, this is all just preliminary work but nothing that will help us see if he is really going to be able to pitch through a partial tear of the UCL.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Michael Brantley (back) has returned to the Indians' lineup Sunday.
Brantley was out of the lineup as precaution and now seems to be 100 percent healthy. Brantley was one of the most improved players last season, which has greatly increased his fantasy value as some people are drafting him in the second or third round in fantasy drafts. He'll have to have another strong season in order to return value on that high of a draft pick. Analysis: Mark Kaplan
