The Indians have placed outfielder Michael Brantley on the 10-day disabled list with an ankle sprain.

Brantley was injured in the fifth inning of last night’s 4-1 win over Colorado while running for a ball hit to left. Brantley previously missed nearly two weeks with an ankle sprain he suffered in mid-June.

Brantley is hitting .299/.358/.445 with nine homers and 52 RBI in 88 games this season. He missed all but 11 games last season with shoulder problems.

Abraham Almonte will likely be Brantley’s replacement while he’s out.
