Thu, 17 Jul 2014 16:54:05 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Chris Dickerson (hamstring) is OK to play Friday, July 18, according to manager Terry Francona. OF Michael Bourn (hamstring) remains in Cleveland, and a plan for his rehab is still being mapped out.

Fantasy Tip: The fact that Bourn continues to deal with lower body injuries is very perplexing. Until he can return to 100 percent health, his stolen base numbers and attempts will probably suffer.

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 11:40:40 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn's (hamstring) MRI exam confirmed a mild to moderate left hamstring strain, and he's expected to be out for three to four weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Another lower leg injury for Bourn doesn't look good for him to all of a sudden begin stealing bags at a rapid rate in the second half of the season. In shallow mixed leagues, if you don't have DL room, we wouldn't blame you for cutting Bourn.
