Indians' Michael Bourn working to strengthen legs
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Indians outfielder Michael Bourn is working on strengthening his legs, according to MLB.com.

Bourn is looking to steal more bases this season, but acknowledged it takes him more time to warm up these days. "I've got to get my body warmed up," he said. "I need to get prepared to play."

In order to combat that, Bourn worked with former Olympian Leroy Burrell during the offseason. With Burrell's program, Bourn is hoping to reduce the strain on his hamstrings. He's missed time in each of the past two seasons due to hamstring issues. 

Bourn stresses that even though the steal totals have been low, he doesn't feel that he's lost his explosiveness. "I never lost my explosiveness," Bourn said. "That never was a problem. I just had to get comfortable coming back off a hamstring injury to have that wherewithal of, 'OK don't worry about that.'"

The 32-year-old hit .257/.314/.360 over 444 at-bats last year.

Indians want Michael Bourn to get back to his base-stealing ways
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Indians want outfielder Michael Bourn to get back to his base-stealing ways, according to the Plain Dealer

Prior to joining the team, Bourn had compiled five straight seasons with at least 40 steals. Since joining the team, he's stolen 33 bases in two seasons. Injuries have played a role in his decline. Bourn admitted he had some trouble adjusting to the American League in his first season with Cleveland. He tore his hamstring on the final day of the season, and had offseason surgery, but the issue still plagued him in 2014. 

Manager Terry Francona agreed, saying "When he gets on base, he has to disrupt the game." Francona added, "he wants to do it really bad, he just wasn't in position to do it the last couple of years. Hopefully, those injuries are limited and he can use his legs because he's a huge part of what we do."

Bourn, 32, hit .257/.314/.360 over 444 at-bats last year.

Michael Bourn back from DL
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Indians outfielder Michael Bourn was activated from the 15-day disabled list Friday, as expected, after recovering from a hamstring injury. He is not in the lineup for his first game back, Friday against the Orioles. 

Bourn has been out since early July as a result of the injury, but got through his latest rehab assignment without issue. He is expected to resume playing everyday, but could get some extra time off to keep him fresh. He was hitting .267/.316/.379 but has been limited to 66 games due to injuries.
