Brantley, colloquially referred to as Uncle Mike and Dr. Smooth, even by some of his younger Astros teammates, appears to fit in positively with the Astros’ team culture. He appears to be a nice guy other players can seek for mentoring, and has been involved in the community. Brantley has been involved in supporting the National Hemophilia Foundation.
