Indians place Michael Bourn on 15-day DL with another hamstring injury
The Indians have, once again, lost center fielder Michael Bourn to a hamstring injury.
The Indians have placed center fielder and leadoff hitter Michael Bourn on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring injury, the team announced. He will undergo an MRI on Sunday to determine the severity of the injury.
Bourn, 31, exited Saturday's game with a the hamstring problem. He missed the start of this season recovering from offseason surgery on that same left hamstring. As a player who draws so much of his value -- both offensively and defensively -- from his speed, any kind of leg injury is a big concern.
In 66 games and 309 plate appearances around the hamstring problems, Bourn has hit .267/.316/.379 (97 OPS+) with seven home runs and only seven stolen basesthis year. He hit .263/.316/.360 (92 OPS+) with 23 home runs in 130 games last season, his first with Cleveland.
The Indians called up outfielder Tyler Holt to take Bourn's spot on the roster. The 25-year-old has hit .300/.425/.380 with 21 home runs in 76 games split between Double-A and Triple-A this season. This will be Holt's first big league experience.
