An MRI performed on Indians OF Michael Bourn confirms mild to moderate left hamstring strain. He is expected to be out 3-4 weeks.
Bourn was forced out of Saturday's game with the injury and it seems to be the same hamstring that he had surgery on last year and that has given him problems throughout this season. Tyler Holt has taken Bourn's spot on the roster. ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Antonio Smith may sit out practice this week.
Smith is the subject of a child abuse investigation in Texas. The case has been dragging on for some time now, with the DA sifting through the report from the Fort Bend County Sheriff since February. Even if the case is ultimately dropped by the prosecutor, Smith could still face discipline from the league as part of its effort to improve its public image, as part of the personal conduct policy under the CBA between the players union and the league.

Garcia left after less than two innings of action on Monday. He was coming off a knee issue that held him out two games before playing again on Sunday, where he went 1-for-2 with a strikeout. A problem significant to force him from the game, occurring with the same body part that sidelined him last week is of concern, so stay tuned for an update on his situation. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
