Masahiro Tanaka threw 35 pitches Wednesday and said everything feels fine.
Tanaka's session Wednesday was still from flat ground but he threw 10 more pitches than he did in his previous session. The true test, though, will be how he fares once he starts throwing from a mound again. These current sessions are great efforts to help rebuild his stamina, but at some point they're going to have to test velocity.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
