Indians outfielder, Michael Brantley, has been nothing less than a spark for the Tribe this season. He has a current batting percentage of .302, which is fourth in the AL, while also recording 40 RBI’s, 9 HR’s, and 8 SB’s. His impact has been nothing short of positive while on the field. He executes in every game, but also comes through in clutch moments, which is why he has All-Star potential.
Cleveland is not the only city that has noticed the potential of rising star, Michael Brantley. According to the All-Star leader boards, Brantley is currently ninth on the leader boards with over 400,000 votes. This is just proof that fans outside of the 216 are also advocates of the Indian’s outfielder. Brantley has displayed his whole arsenal this season, whether it be gunning a runner rounding third out from left field or coming in the clutch with an RBI single up the middle scoring the wining run. There is no question that Michael Brantley is a good ball player, but the time has come where Brantley should be recognized as a rising star.
