Indians activate Michael Bourn from the disabled list

9 Comments

Indians center fielder Michael Bourn is off the disabled list after missing the past three weeks with a lacerated finger from being spiked.

In his absence the Indians used Drew Stubbs in center field, with Ryan Raburn taking over in right field. Raburn has hit really well while Stubbs has struggled–and hasn’t really hit since 2010–so expect Stubbs to see more bench time with Bourn back in center field.

Bourn, who signed a four-year, $40 million deal with the Indians this offseason, hit .333 with two homers and a .975 OPS in 10 games before the injury.
