Michael Bourn will need rehab assignment before returning


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Indians outfielder Michael Bourn (hamstring) will play in a few games on a rehab assignment before he comes off the disabled list, according to The Plain Dealer. Manager Terry Francona said Bourn will start running with more intensity this week.

"I don't think it's realistic that he's going to go out and play three days in a row after he's been down (for so long)," Francona said. "I could take longer. It's not just his hitting. It's his legs and his whole body.

"If he was a power-hitting first baseman, who couldn't run, it might be different. That's not the case."


No timetable set for return of Michael Bourn


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2014) Terry Francona has provided no timetable for the return of Indians center fielder Michael Bourn, who has been out nearly three weeks with a strained left hamstring.

"When he's ready to play, he's ready to play," Francona told the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Bourn has proven disappointing again after signing a free agent contract in 2013. Extensive hamstring problems have played a role in him being limited to seven stolen bases. His .267/.316/.379 stat line is nearly identical to the one he compiled a year ago.

(7/24/2014) Indians outfielder Michael Bourn played long-toss in the outfield prior to Thursday's game against the Royals in Kansas City. He's also been taking part in light running drills, as he continues to work his way back from a hamstring injury, MLB.com reports.

Bourn has been sidelined since July 5 with the injury and remains without a timetable. He will likely need a rehab stint in the minors. Before the injury, he batted .267 with three homers, 21 RBI, 37 runs scored and seven steals in 285 at-bats.

(7/23/2014) Indians center fielder and leadoff hitter Michael Bourn has tested out his injured hamstring by running Monday and Wednesday, per MLB.com. He expressed satisfaction with his progress after going down on July 5.

"Hitting (Tuesday) went fine," he said. "I'm just going to take it one day at a time and just stick to the program. Hopefully, I can get close to playing again."

That would please fellow Cleveland outfielder Micheal Brantley. "He's a big part of what we do here," he said. "We're battling the best we can until he's healthy, and we look forward to having him back soon."

Replacement Chris Dickerson has been far from shabby. He has 12 hits in 32 at-bats with eight runs, two home runs and six RBI.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/18/2014) Indians outfielder Michael Bourn began running on an anti-gravity treadmill, which reduces stress on the legs, according to MLB.com on Friday. Bourn, who is working his wat back from a left hamstring strain, is expected to resume light running drills in the near future.
