DALLAS, Texas– The Indians provided an update Tuesday on how Michael Brantley is doing following shoulder surgery.

The outfielder, who played in only 11 games this season, underwent season-ending shoulder surgery on Monday in Dallas, Texas. The procedure, called a bicep tenodesis, lasted about 45 minutes, the team said.

Doctors were able to check out Brantley’s previously repaired labrum in his shoulder during this operation. According to Indians, the rest of the shoulder joint looked good.

Brantley is expected to fully recover in four months.

Brantley was on the disabled list for the beginning of this season after another shoulder surgery in November. Last week, he began experiencing shoulder symptoms during hitting practice.
