Michael Bourn, who is on the disabled list with a hamstring injury stayed back in Cleveland. The plan for Bourn still being mapped out.
There is no real timetable for Bourn's return and this news makes that even more clearer. Bourn's game is speed and if he tries to return before he is fully healthy, he will be a detriment to both the Indians and fantasy owners. He should help down the stretch, but expect to be without him until at least early August.ANALYST: David Kerr
Jose Abreu was 0-for-4 on Saturday ending his seventeen game hitting streak.
During his seventeen hitting streak, Jose Abreu hit .318 and was only four short of his career high set last year in his rookie campaign. But he is now hitting .283 on the season and has fallen short on the power numbers so far this year. Abreu is hitting more ground balls (49.1%) this year yet his home run to fly ball ratio has fallen nine percentage points from 26.9 in 2014 to 17.1 this season. Since the whole offense has struggled, it is exacerbated when their best hitter is not hitting on all cylinders either. Abreu is solid, but maybe not worthy of the first round status he achieved after one season in the majors. Analysis: Greg Jewett
