Indians OF Michael Bourn back in lineup after missing 4 games with hamstring injury

  • Print

CLEVELAND - Indians centre fielder and leadoff hitter Michael Bourn has returned to the lineup after missing four games because of an injured left hamstring.

Bourn left Saturday's game when he felt the leg tighten up after beating out a bunt against the Chicago White Sox. He didn't play Sunday and missed the first three games against Minnesota.

Bourn had surgery on the hamstring in October, but strained it in spring training and began the season on the disabled list. He's batting .266 with four RBIs and two stolen bases.

The Indians begin a trip to Tampa Bay and Toronto on Friday. With games on artificial turf, it's unlikely that Bourn will play every day. Nyjer Morgan, who was recalled from Triple-A Columbus when Bourn was injured, will probably stay with the team. Morgan replaced Bourn the last three games.

Bourn had surgery on the hamstring in October, but strained it in spring training and began the season on the disabled list. He's batting .266 with four RBIs, two stolen bases and has been caught stealing three times in 15 games.
