Michael Bourn will open season on DL with hamstring injury
Indians center fielder Michael Bourn will open the season on the DL with a hamstring injury.
Indians center fielder Michael Bourn will open the regular season on the DL due to a hamstring injury, the team announced. He was only expected to miss about a week, but will apparently need more time to get healthy and ready for game action.
After signing a four-year, $48 million deal last spring with the Indians, Bourn hit .263/.316/.360 (93 OPS+) with 21 doubles, six triples, six homers, 50 RBI, 75 runs and 23 stolen bases. He still played good defense in center, but it was a pretty big step back from his All-Star season in 2012.
With Bourn sidelined, Michael Brantley figures to take over in center field with Ryan Raburn playing left.
