Good news Wednesday out of Indians camp …

Michael Bourn told reporters, including Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, that his surgically-repaired left hamstring feels “100 percent” healthy. He had that hamstring procedure in mid-October after injuring himself during the Tribe’s American League Wild Card Game loss to the Rays.

Bourn may be held out of the first few games on the Indians’ Cactus League schedule as a precautionary measure, but he should have zero restrictions by the middle of March and is certain to be in Cleveland’s starting lineup on Opening Day as long as he avoids another physical setback.

Bourn posted a weak .263/.316/.360 batting line in 2013 and finished with his lowest stolen base total (23) since he became a full-time major leaguer. The 31-year-old outfielder signed a four-year, $48 million free agent contract with the Indians last winter and will be looking to bounce back in 2014.

Longtime Angels and Cardinals outfielder Jim Edmonds shared on his Instagram story that he is being tested for coronavirus.

The four-time All-Star, who now works as a broadcaster for Fox Sports Midwest, has not posted an update on the results of his test.

If you want to learn more about COVID-19 or think you might need to be tested, give the CDC’s site about the virus a read. Informing yourself is the most important step. Washing your hands and staying home, if possible, is the best way to protect yourself.
