MICHAEL BOURN RUMORS

Top of Tribe Lineup Gives Hope for Future Seasons

When the Indians season started, offense was a dirty word that never quite appeared. Until late April, Michael Bourn was leading the Indians lineup after being rumored to be able to get on base, but proving ineffective at drawing walks and delivering hits that put him on base and resulted in runs being scored. Once he moved out of the leadoff spot, Jason Kipnis took over and, slowly...

Not all Indians in clubhouse sad to see Nick Swisher go

Nick Swisher and Michael Bourn were traded last week, and now their departures — especially that of Swisher — have inspired some looks back at their time in Cleveland. Both had been productive MLB players elsewhere and came to Cleveland as big money, 30-plus year-old free agents; both struggled to maintain that productivity and showed their age more than Tribe brass hoped...

Indians moving on without Nick Swisher and Michael Bourn

While both signings made a big splash when they first happened following the 2012 season, Michael Bourn and Nick Swisher have become two of the most hated men in Cleveland over the past two seasons. The pair made up 33% of team payroll for 2014 alone and contributed 0.0 (Swisher) and 0.4 (Bourn) of the Indians 12.1 total WAR (3.3%) according to Fangraphs. It isn’t surprising that...

O-H Bye Bros: Indians trade Swisher, Bourn, cash to Braves for Chris Johnson

While the 2015 Cleveland Indians season has been absolutely disappointing, Mark Shapiro and Chris Antonetti apparently have used such frustrations as an impetus to start an overhaul on the team. The infrastructure rebuild started before the MLB trade deadline when David Murphy and Marc Rzepczynski were shipped off to contenders for prospects. However, such trades were merely appetizers...

Michael Bourn moved to ninth spot in the lineup on Sunday

For the first time since being signed by the Cleveland Indians, Michael Bourn will start on Sunday in the series finale versus the Detroit Tigers, but not at the leadoff spot. Instead of batting first, Terry Francona has decided to drop him to the bottom of the order and bat him ninth versus Detroit.

How crazy would it be for Indians to consider trading Michael Bourn?

The Indians shocked much of baseball by signing All-Star outfielder Michael Bourn in February to a deal worth up to $60 million over five years. While the team then surprised en route to 92 wins and an AL Wild Card appearance, Bourn disappointed. After a four-year near-superstar average of 4.8 jWAR (definition here), he posted a measly 2.2 jWAR in 2013 – just barely above legitimate...
