Nyjer Morgan left Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays with a mild right knee sprain.

The kicker is that Morgan was only in the game because of an injury to Michael Brantley. The term "mild" suggests it's not a serious issue and Morgan should be back soon. Still, with two outfielder's down the Indians may need to make a roster move before Thursday's game.

Nyjer Morgan went 3-for-4 with a home run and three runs scored in Sunday's win over the Rays.

Morgan's first home run of the year was also his first since July 30, 2012. It was the third time he crossed the plate on the afternoon, giving him eight runs in 14 games played this year. With Michael Bourn struggling, it wouldn't be surprising to see Morgan and his .341/.429/.439 line get more playing time in the coming days.

The move clears a spot for Michael Bourn's return from the disabled list. Morgan played well during his time with the Indians, hitting .348 (8-for-23) with three stolen bases in nine games. We'll likely see him in the majors again soon.

Nyjer Morgan hit a go-ahead sacrifice fly in Monday's 2-0 win over the Athletics.

After spending last season in Japan, Morgan made the Indians out of spring training and started in center field and batted leadoff on Opening Day. His sacrifice fly in the top of the ninth inning broke a scoreless tie. Michael Bourn (hamstring) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as this weekend, so Morgan might not be around for long.

Indians purchased the contract of OF Nyjer Morgan from Triple-A Columbus.

Morgan hit only .208/.333/.292 this spring, but with Michael Bourn (hamstring) out the Indians need some help in center field. The fiery outfielder should see plenty of playing time versus righties while Bourn is out and might be worth a look in deep fantasy formats.
