Aug. 9 8:42 AM PT9:42 AM MT10:42 AM CT11:42 AM ET11:42 ET15:42 GMT23:42 8:42 AM MST10:42 AM EST11:12 AM VEN19:42 UAE10:42 AM CT-Brantley has been placed on the disabled list after injuring his right ankle again, but the injury is not as bad as originally feared.
Analysis: Brantley, sidelined earlier this season with an injury to the same ankle, initially was concerned he tore his Achilles after taking a few steps toward a fly ball in the fifth inning Tuesday against Colorado. He immediately sat in the outfield grass. His expression indicated he thought the injury was serious. However, an MRI revealed only a sprain, and manager Terry Francona said Wednesday that the team feels ''a heck of a lot better than we did last night."

Analysis: Brantley, who is having a strong comeback season after missing most of 2016 due to right shoulder surgery, took a few steps to his left on a fly ball to center before pulling up. He stopped and sat in the grass while waiting to be checked by a trainer. Brantley's facial expression seemed to indicate the injury could be serious. He missed nearly two weeks in June after spraining the same ankle.
