Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn (hamstring) is dealing with a mild left hamstring strain and will miss at least a week. His availability for the season opener March 31 is now in question.
FANTASY TIP: If managed correctly, Bourn shouldn't need to miss too many regular season games if this injury creeps into April. Michael Brantley could move to center field to replace him, giving David Murphy an everyday role until Bourn returns.
