Cleveland Indian Michael Bourn was pulled from Sunday’s game in Arizona with “mild tightness” in his left hamstring.
He was re-evaluated on Monday by the Tribe’s medical staff and is optimistic that he will still be ready to go when the Indians open the season on March 31st.
Bourn felt the tightness running from first to third on a single by Nick Swisher in the first inning. He would score and remain in the game through his at-bat in the second, but was replaced by Tyler Naquin for the home half of the inning.
According to Bourn, the injury is not related to the one he suffered in last year’s playoff game that required off-season surgery.
