The Cleveland Indians have placed center fielder Michael Bourn on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 15, due to a lacerated index finger. Bourn suffered the injury sliding into first base in the 8th inning on Sunday versus the Chicago White Sox. This is just his second career stint on the Major League disabled list (the first since 2007). On the young season, Bourn is hitting .333 (14-45) with four doubles, a triple, two home runs and two runs batted in. He is currently tied for 10th in the American League in extra base hits (seven) and 15th in OPS (.975). Taking Bourn’s place on the 25-man roster is right-handed pitcher Corey Kluber who is recalled from Triple-A Columbus. Kluber has made two starts with Clippers this year (12.1IP, 14H, 9R/ER, 1-1 record) and was with the Indians last week (April 10-12), but did not appear in a game due to multiple rain-outs. Presently, Scott Kazmir and Ubaldo Jiménez are scheduled to pitch on April 19 and 20, respectively. Jiménez recently allowed seven earned runs in just 1 1/3 innings and is a candidate to be skipped if needed. Kluber, theoretically, can also slot in as the long man in the bullpen given the work they received on Tuesday night. [Related: The Diff: Baseball attendance in April, sellout streaks]
