Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn (hamstring) will serve as the designated hitter for Triple-A Columbus Thursday, Aug. 14, with the goal of returning from the disabled list Friday, Aug. 15.

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn (hamstring) could be cleared to rejoin the team this weekend, according to manager Terry Francona.
Fantasy Tip: Bourn, thanks to nagging lower body injuries, hasn't been able to run much this season when he's been on the field. Without his stolen base contributions, he doesn't help a fantasy squad much. He'll be worth considering in deep mixed leagues upon his return, but you can wait in standard leagues.

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn (hamstring) will play seven innings for Double-A Akron Thursday, Aug. 7, after taking a day off Wednesday, Aug. 6.
Fantasy Tip: Check your league's waiver wire to see if Bourn was dropped by his previous owner. There's a good chance he's available. Bourn, if he can stay healthy for the remainder of the year, could be a decent source of stolen bases if he's playing often.

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn (hamstring) has no set timetable for his return from the 15-day disabled list, although he is expected to increase his rehab workload over the coming week. "I've kind of on purpose not gone in to push him," manager Terry Francona said Tuesday, July 29. "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."
Fantasy Tip: It has been a lost season for Bourn, who cannot seem to stay healthy. Fantasy owners need to keep being patient and wait for him to officially come off the DL and play one or two full games without any setbacks before plugging him back into the active lineup.
