Indians' Bourn has leg surgery

Center Fielder hurt in playoffs

ASSOCIATED PRESS

CLEVELAND — Indians center fielder Michael Bourn has had surgery on his left hamstring after getting hurt in Cleveland’s final regular-season game.

Bourn had the operation in Dallas on Tuesday. The Indians said Bourn will need six weeks to recover at his home in Houston before he can begin his normal offseason program.

The 30-year-old leadoff hitter sustained the injury while trying to steal second in the ninth inning of the Indians’ game on Sept. 29 in Minnesota. Cleveland clinched an AL wild-card playoff spot with a 5-1 win.

Bourn played three days later in the wild-card game against Tampa Bay, but went 0 for 4 and struck out twice.

He batted .263 with six homers and 50 RBIs in his first season with the Indians, who signed him to a four-year, $48 million contract in February.
