The Bourn Procedure, Indians OF goes under the knife
OH - The Cleveland Indians today announced CF Michael Bourn underwent minor surgery on his left hamstring today in Dallas, TX. The
procedure was performed in Dallas by Dr. Dan Cooper.
Bourn originally suffered the
injury on a second base steal attempt in the 9th inning of the final
game of the regular season in Cleveland's AL Wildcard-clinching 5-1 win at
Minnesota (Sept. 29). He started and finished the AL WildCard Game three days
later vs. Tampa Bay (Oct 2). This morning Cooper performed a distal
hamstring debridement where the tendon attaches behind Bourn's left knee.
Michael will start rehabilitation this week at his home in Houston and will
begin his normal off-season training program in 4-to-6 weeks.
