Description: Indians center fielder Michael Bourn went 2-for-3 in a loss against the Royals on Monday.

9/14/2014 11:12:00 AM

Insight: Bourn went 1-for-4 and hit a double on Saturday. He is hitting .264/.321/.374 with 27 extra-base hits, 26 RBI, 50 runs and 10 stolen bases this year.
 
9/3/2014 10:16:00 AM
Description: Indians center fielder Michael Bourn is hitting .370 (10-for-27) in his career against Tigers right-hander Justin Verlander.
Insight: Bourn is also 4-for-4 in stolen base attempts once he gets on against Verlander. Injuries have minimized Bourn's fantasy value this season as he's played just 82 games
 
8/30/2014 10:43:00 AM
Description: Indians center fielder Michael Bourn is hitting .348 (8-for-23) in his career against Royals starter James Shields.
Insight: Bourn had his five-game hitting streak snapped on Friday, going 0-for-5. Even with the 0-for-5, Bourn is hitting .333 in the last week with three extra-base hits. On the season, he is batting .268 with three home runs and 25 RBI in 332 at-bats.
 
8/13/2014 3:22:00 PM
Description: Indians center fielder Michael Bourn (left hamstring injury) will be activated from the DL Friday, according to Jordan Bastian of mlb.com.
Insight: A strained hamstring has kept Bourn out since July 6. He's hit .267 with three homers, 21 RBI, 37 runs and seven steals this season and his hamstring injury may make him reluctant to run after he returns to the Indians lineup.
 
8/3/2014 10:23:00 AM
Description: Indians center fielder Michael Bourn (left hamstring injury) ran the bases Saturday and came out of it without incident.
Insight: If he's fine Sunday, Bourn should begin a rehab assignment this week. Bourn last played July 5. He's batting .267 with 3 HR, 21 RBI, 37 runs and 7 steals.
 
7/19/2014 10:29:00 AM
Description: Indians center fielder Michael Bourn (left hamstring injury) was originally on a 3-4 week timetable for his return, but that doesn't appear to be the reality of the injury.
Insight: Three weeks down the road and there is still no timetable for his return to the lineup. Even when he returns, he'll likely tone down his running game and without that his fantasy value is minimal.
 
7/10/2014 10:13:00 AM
Description: Indians center fielder Michael Bourn (left hamstring injury) is on a 3-4 week timetable for his return.
Insight: Bourn with a running issue makes him a non-factor for fantasy owners for a while even when he returns to the lineup. He's batting .267 with 3 HR, 21 RBI, 37 runs and seven steals.
 
7/6/2014 10:11:00 AM
Description: Indians center fielder Michael Bourn left Saturday night's game with a left hamstring injury and not unexpectedly is not in Sunday's starting lineup.
Insight: Bourn with a running issue makes him a non-factor for fantasy owners. He could miss a few games.
 
7/5/2014 11:33:00 PM
Description: Indians center fielder Michael Bourn left Saturday night's game with a left hamstring injury.
Insight: Not before Bourn homered and scored a pair of runs. Bourne could miss a few games.
 
Cold6/16/2014 10:06:00 AM
Description: Indians center fielder Michael Bourn is just 1-for-10 with five strikeouts versus Angels right-hander Jered Weaver.
Insight: Bourn has done little over the past two weeks (12 games) batting .175 and stealing just one base. Avoid this unfavorable matchup.
 
6/1/2014 8:21:00 PM
Description: Indians center fielder Michael Bourn smashed a walkoff home run Sunday against Colorado.
Insight: It was only Bourn's second homer of the season. He's hitting .288 this year, a significant improvement from last season when Bourn batted just .263 over 130 games. Unfortunately, he hasn't been nearly as active on the base paths, logging just four steals in 37 contests.
 
5/8/2014 9:45:00 AM
Description: Cleveland center fielder Michael Bourn (hamstring) will start Thursday, according to the Indians on Twitter.
Insight: Bourn (.266) began the season on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring and left Saturday's game with tightness, but he's confident that it was only scar tissue breaking up. Bourn's game is speed, so this is a cause for concern even though he's back in the lineup. Bourn has attempted five steals this season and stolen two bases.
 
5/7/2014 4:13:00 PM
Description: Cleveland center fielder Michael Bourn (hamstring) isn't in Wednesday's lineup. He said Tuesday he hoped to be back in the lineup within a few days.
Insight: Bourn (.266) began the season on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring and left Saturday's game with tightness, but he's confident that it was only scar tissue breaking up. Bourn's game is speed, so this is a cause for concern even if he's able to avoid the DL. He's attempted five steals this season and stolen two bases.
 
5/6/2014 4:41:00 PM
Description: Cleveland center fielder Michael Bourn (hamstring) said he feels good and hopes to be back in the lineup within the next few days, according to Jordan Bastian of mlb.com.

4/23/2014 10:22:00 PM
Description: Cleveland center fielder Michael Bourn went 3-for-5 Wednesday against the Royals, but he was caught stealing twice.
Insight: Bourn is 2-for-5 on stolen-base attempts, but at least he's not being conservative on the basepaths after missing the first two weeks with a hamstring injury.
 
4/15/2014 3:33:00 PM
Description: The Indians have activated center fielder Michael Bourn (hamstring) from the 15-day disabled list.
Insight: Bourn's injury may have him running conservatively when he returns, though he did steal a base in his rehab stint. The 31-year-old had just 23 steals on 35 attempts in 2013 after averaging 51 steals and 63 attempts per season from 2008-12.
 
4/10/2014 8:00:00 PM
Description: Indians center fielder Michael Bourn (hamstring) is likely to return on April 15, though he hasn't been ruled out for April 13. SOURCE: Paul Hoynes, Cleveland Plain Dealer
Insight: Bourn's injury may have him running conservatively when he returns, which isn't good for a player whose main contributions to fantasy teams are stolen bases and runs. The 31-year-old had just 23 steals on 35 attempts in 2013 after averaging 51 steals and 63 attempts per season from 2008-12.
 
4/3/2014 3:08:00 PM
Description: Indians center fielder Michael Bourn (hamstring) starts a rehab assignment on Thursday at Triple-A Columbus.
Insight: Bourne could return as soon as Saturday. We worry that this injury could have him running conservatively at the start of 2014.The 31-year-old averaged 51.4 steals 2008-12, but swiped just 23 bags last season and his fantasy value is tied to his speed.
