Michael Brantley gets four-year extension from Indians



The Cleveland Indians and outfielder Michael Brantley have reached a four-year extension.

Brantley, 26, will get $25 million over the next four seasons while the club will have a $11 million option for 2018.

Arbitration-eligble for the first time, the Indians took a page out of their own book by giving him a extension to buy out as much as two years of his free agency.

Brantley hit .284/.332/.396 last season with 10 home runs, 73 RBI and 17 stolen bases.
