Cleveland is expected to activate Michael Bourn from the disabled list for Friday’s game after the center fielder missed the past six weeks with a hamstring injury.

Bourn has battled hamstring problems since last season and underwent surgery, so it’s not surprising that a 3-4 week recovery timetable turned into a longer absence.

Because of all the leg problems Bourn has ceased doing damage as a base-runner, swiping just 30 bases while being thrown out 15 times in 196 games since last season. He stole 40-plus bases every year from 2008-2012, leading the league in 2009, 2010, and 2011.

      Is that from one Michael Bourn or an entire Michael Bourn team? And is he running on catcher Adam Dunn?

    Career .316 OBP, really needs his speed because thats what ppl feel like he is worth the 12/yr contract he has. 30-40 SBs. Buyer Beware on speed threats, feel better Born.
