Michael Bourn back in Indians’ lineup on Sunday

1 Comment

Veteran outfielder Michael Bourn was held out of the Indians’ starting lineup on Saturday with what was called a cervical strain. That sounded like a pretty serious injury, but all appears to be fine …

Bourn is starting in center field and batting ninth in Cleveland’s series finale against the Blue Jays on Sunday afternoon at Progressive Field. Second baseman Jason Kipnis will remain in the leadoff spot, where he’s been pretty productive lately.

Bourn, 32, is batting just .202/.264/.250 in 92 plate appearances this season for the Tribe. He’s also been caught stealing on two of his four attempts.
