Michael Bourn could return this weekend


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/12/2014) Indians outfielder Michael Bourn could be cleared to return at some point during the team's upcoming weekend series against the Orioles, MLB.com reports.

"Bourny is doing really well," manager Terry Francona said Tuesday. "I wouldn't be surprised if he plays for us this weekend. We've just got to sit with Bourny and figure out how to get him to this weekend, just because we have a day off on Thursday, and having him sitting for a couple days might not make sense. So we'll sit with him and kind of figure out the best way to get him back here where he feels good about himself, and also has as many at-bats as he can get without having too many, because he's not ready to quite play every day."

Out since July 6 with a hamstring injury, Bourn is continuing his rehab assignment with Triple-A Columbus Tuesday. He's 1 for 14 in three games at two levels during his rehab.

"I've kind of on purpose not gone in to push him," manager Terry Francona said. "He's going to obviously add intensity as he continues to feel better. ... He will just continue to ramp up. And when he's ready to play, we'll send him out to play."

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

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.
