Injury Update On Houston Astros Veteran Outfielder

He was limited to just 64 games last season.

Houston Astros outfielder Michael Brantley said on Monday that he's on schedule with his recovery from last year's surgery.

Brantley re-signed with the Astros on a one-year, $12 million contract in December. 

The veteran outfielder noted that he probably won't be able to play in any spring training games, which begin this weekend, but that he will ease into game action this spring.

Opening Day is still uncertain for Brantley, but it's good to see that he's continuing to make progress without any setbacks.

The thirty-five-year-old holds a .303/.365/.439 triple-slash line, with 18 home runs, 95 RBIs, four stolen bases and 120 runs scored over 231 games and the last three seasons with the Astros.

He figures to be the Astros primary designated hitter this season.
