Michael Brantley not in Indians' ALDS Game 5 lineup

Cleveland Indians outfielder/designated hitter Michael Brantley is not in the lineup on Wednesday for Game 5 of the ALDS against the New York Yankees.

What It Means:

Edwin Encarnacion is in the lineup Wednesday after missing two games with an ankle sprain. This will send Brantley back to the bench as the Indians face off against C.C. Sabathia in Game 5.

Our Matchup Heat Map has the Indians with a 4.31 implied total in Game 5.
