Brantley (ankle) was noncommittal when asked about his status for Opening Day, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. "We shall see," the outfielder said. "I'm going to take it one day at a time like I always say."
Hernandez (forearm) is currently penciled in by manager Scott Servais as the Opening Day starter, but the skipper won't make a definitive decision until the right-hander gets through his Saturday Cactus League start against the Cubs, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. "We still haven't made a decision on it yet," Servais said. "It really depends on where he's at and how he comes out of [this Saturday's outing]. If he does need one more, we'll give him one more. But we want to give him every opportunity to make the Opening Day start if it's good and he's able to hit the benchmarks we have out there."
