Indians center fielder Michael Bourn out of the lineup Tuesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Indians center fielder Michael Bourn is out of the starting lineup on Tuesday, with Michael Brantley shifting to center and Ryan Raburn moving taking over in left field, according to MLB.com. Manager Terry Francona indicated Bourn will be held out of the lineup for the forseeable future against left-handed pitchers.

"I talked to Bourny today a little bit about it," Francona said prior to Tuesday's game, per MLB.com. "And this is just in the near future, because we really want Bourny to be our center fielder, but it's been a struggle for him against lefties."

It will be Brantley's first start in center field this season after drawing 44 starts there in 2014. The Indians are currently the underdogs (+110) against Kansas City.
