Brantley was removed from the game in the top of the fifth. Colorado's Mark Reynolds, leading off the inning, hit a fly ball that was caught by Cleveland center fielder Bradley Zimmer. On the play, Brantley took a couple steps toward center, then stopped and sat down on the outfield grass. After being examined by the Indians' trainer, Brantley walked slowly off the field.
Brantley, who was replaced by Abraham Almonte, is hitting .299, with nine home runs and 52 RBIs.
