Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn (hamstring) has no set timetable for his return from the 15-day disabled list, although he is expected to increase his rehab workload over the coming week. "I've kind of on purpose not gone in to push him," manager Terry Francona said Tuesday, July 29. "He's going to obviously add intensity as he continues to feel better. He will just continue to ramp up. And when he's ready to play, we'll send him out to play."
Fantasy Tip: It has been a lost season for Bourn, who cannot seem to stay healthy. Fantasy owners need to keep being patient and wait for him to officially come off the DL and play one or two full games without any setbacks before plugging him back into the active lineup.

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn's (hamstring) MRI exam confirmed a mild to moderate left hamstring strain, and he's expected to be out for three to four weeks.
