Michael Bourn hit his first homer of the year and walked twice Sunday against the A's.

We're more impressed by the two walks; he entered the day with just four in 100 at-bats, leaving him with a poor .276 OBP. The Indians need more from him in order to set up the rest of their lineup.

Michael Bourn went 2-for-4 with a walk and an RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Bourn, who had been dealing with hamstring tightness, logged his first multi-hit game since April 27 and walked for the first time since April 25. Bourn has been slow since coming off of the disabled list in mid-April, currently the owner of a meager .256/.287/.354 slash line. He has stolen only two bases in five attempts as well.

Michael Bourn (hamstring) is back in the Indians' starting lineup Thursday afternoon against the Twins.

Michael Bourn (hamstring) remained out of the Indians' lineup Wednesday.

Bourn was seen testing out his left hamstring again prior to the game, but he's still not well enough to return to the lineup. The Indians are confident that it's merely a day-to-day issue with the outfielder. Nyjer Morgan is in center field again Wednesday.

Michael Bourn (hamstring) said Tuesday that he heels good and hopes to return to the lineup in the next few days.

Bourn left Saturday's game with tightness in his left hamstring, but he's confident that it's only scar tissue breaking up. At the very least, it looks like he'll avoid a stint on the disabled list for now.

Indians manager Terry Francona said that Michael Bourn (hamstring) was scheduled to "go hard" in running drills prior to Monday's game.

It's not clear at this point how the running went. The Indians have to make a roster move for Tuesday's starter, Josh Tomlin, and it's possible Bourn will be placed on the DL if he hasn't made the necessary progress. "We've got to see how he feels, and he's the one that has to tell us," Francona said. "We just want to make him understand that he's got to be honest, and then we'll sit down with him and make decisions. That's kind of how we always do things."

Michael Bourn was pulled in the third inning Saturday because of tightness in his left hamstring.

Bourn had surgery on that same hamstring last October and re-injured it near the end of spring training. The Indians are saying his removal Saturday was "precautionary," but an extended absence can't be ruled out.

Michael Bourn went 2-for-4 against the Giants on Sunday.

Bourn has been hot at the plate in recent days, as he's got 10 hits in his last 23 at-bats. It's part of a seven-game hitting streak that's got his average up to .295. He's still not stealing bases at a rapid pace -- he's got two in five attempts thus far -- but that may come as his hamstring continues to feel better.

Michael Bourn went 3-for-5 with a two-run triple on Wednesday, but he was also caught stealing twice.

The good news is that Bourn has attempted five steals in seven games since coming off the disabled list last week. The bad is that he's been caught on three of those. Still, he'll have a lot more fantasy value if he keeps running. Last year, he attempted just 35 steals in 130 games, a far cry from his peak of 75 and a big drop from the 65 he attempted in 155 games in 2012.
