Indians outfielder Michael Bourn was removed from Sunday afternoon’s game against the Giants in the second inning due to a strained left hamstring. Paul Hoynes of the Plain Dealer reports that the strain is considered “mild”. He will be reevaluated on Monday.

Bourn had surgery on the same hamstring back in mid-October, but showed up to camp in February feeling fine. Now entering the second year of a four-year, $48 million contract with the Indians, Bourn had his worst season since 2010 last year, stealing only 23 bases in 35 attempts while hitting a meager .263.

    Hmmm…I recall that Bourn was one of those free agents who LAST YEAR lingered on the open market until almost spring training because he had received a QO. The Indians should have listened to those nagging doubts about signing a guy on the wrong side of 30 whose whole game was reliant upon speed.
