Michael Bourn is questionable for Opening Day

Michael Bourn strained his surgically-repaired left hamstring yesterday and now his Opening Day is in doubt:

 

It would appear that Michael Brantley will shift over to center until Bourn can return.

Any extended absence for Bourn would be bad news, as the Indians need him to be a spark plug. If they want to repeat or improve upon their 92-win season last season, it’d be way easier if Bourn and Nick Swisher returned to form.
