MICHAEL BOURN RUMORS

Indians counting on speedy Bourn to bounce back in 2014

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) Michael Bourn got back in the starting blocks this winter. A track sprinter in high school, Cleveland's speedy outfielder had some hurdles to clear. At the Indians' urging, the fleet-footed Bourn spent three months working with former Olympic champion Leroy Burrell. The former world record-holder at 100 meters, Burrell helped Bourn refine his running skills...

The Argument for Flipping the Michaels

With most of the roster decided before pitchers and catchers even reported and few real new additions to talk about, relatively unimportant positional debates can begun earlier than normal. In this particular case, it is the argument that Michael Bourn and Michael Brantley should be flipped in the outfield, despite Brantley’s “comfort level” and Bourn’s “experience.”...

Put Your Money Where Your Bat Is

Back before 2013, the Tribe spent gobs of money on two marquee free agents when they inked Nick Swisher to a four year, $56 million deal and then shocked the world by signing Michael Bourn to one worth $48 million over the same four years. The Bourn deal seemed like a bargain at the time, as the 2012 All-Star had been holding out for a deal worth around $75 million. Currently, however...

Is Bourn finally healthy to bolster the top of the order?

Before Michael Bourn signed with the Indians in 2013, he had only one stint on the disabled list. During his two seasons in Cleveland, he has been on the DL three times. With Bourn working with a track coach at the University of Houston during the offseason, the Indians are hoping that won't be the case this season. Bourn battled hamstring problems all last season after first injuring...

Bourn taken out of Saturday's game due to tightness in left hamstring

WATCH: Michael Bourn's second homer of the year is a walk-off

Cleveland Indians CF Michael Bourn is much more known for his speed than power, with over 300 career steals (including leading the National League from 2009 – 2011) as compared to 29 long balls coming into Sunday’s game.  Bourn made his 30th memorable, sending the Indians to a dramatic walk-off win against the Colorado Rockies.  Watch him power it over the right field wall...

Tribe Happenings: Bourn is not living up to expectations

Some news, notes and thoughts from my Indians notebook… Regretting Bourn We are just about a quarter of the way into year two of the Michael Bourn era in Cleveland.

Bourn Identity: What’s going on with the Indians center fielder?

A massive debate broke out on Twitter at the end of Friday’s disheartening 3-2 Indians defeat. This time around, it wasn’t actually about attendance. No, it was about Michael Bourn and his eventually failed bunt attempt. After red-hot Lonnie Chisenhall started the bottom of the ninth against the Blue Jays with a double, Bourn attempted to bunt twice and failed each time. On the...

Trend Spotting: On Michael Bourn, Quick thoughts on pitching

Over the past three weeks, trading Michael Bourn has become a hipster approach both because of the market place that currently exists as well as his contract implications on the Indians over the next three possibly four years. I must admit that I have fluctuated in between camps regarding whether or not he should be dealt. As well, answering a question like should the Indians deal...
