The Cleveland Indians activated OF Michael Bourn (hamstring) from the disabled list Tuesday, April 15, and optioned OF Nyjer Morgan to Triple-A Columbus in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: The Indians' game Tuesday was postponed, so look for Bourn to make his season debut Wednesday. The Tribe could look to rest Bourn more often initially to ease him back in.

The Cleveland Indians have purchased the contracts of RP Scott Atchison and OF Nyjer Morgan from Triple-A Columbus.
Fantasy Tip: At one point, Atchison and Blake Wood were battling for the final spot in the Cleveland bullpen but both relievers ended up making the 25-man roster. Neither pitcher carries any fantasy value. On the other hand, Morgan might be worth a look in AL-only leagues, with OF Michael Bourn (hamstring) beginning the season on the disabled list.

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn (hamstring) will start the season on the disabled list retroactive to March 21, meaning he'll miss at least the first four games of the regular season. He's dealing with a strained left hamstring that has kept him out for more than a week. OF Nyjer Morgan will make the active roster.
Fantasy Tip: Depending on how quickly he recovers, Bourn might not miss much time at all. You still have to wonder, however, if Bourn's offseason leg surgery will have an impact on his speed and explosiveness on the base paths in 2014.
