Michael Bourn has hamstring surgery, faces 4-6 week recovery
Indians center fielder Michael Bourn had a minor surgery on his left hamstring Tuesday, but he's expected to be fine far in advance of next spring training.
Indians center fielder Michael Bourn underwent a minor surgical procedure in his left hamstring Tuesday, Major League Baseball announced. In the announcement, it was noted that Bourn will begin his offseason training program in four to six weeks.
The surgery comes as a bit of a surprise since Bourn hadn't been publicly known to have any issues in his hamstring during the season. He had a finger laceration, wrist issues and then calf tightness, but the hamstring thing is new information.
Bourn, 30, hit .263/.316/.360 with 21 doubles, six triples, six homers, 50 RBI, 75 runs and 23 stolen bases this season for the wild-card Indians. It was the first year of his four-year, $48 million contract.
Considering that even taking as much as six weeks to heal means Bourn would be back to normal by the first week of December, this shouldn't affect next season at all.
