Tue, 08 Jul 2014 11:58:23 -0700

Indians | Michael Bourn expected out 3-4 weeks

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.
