CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – Cleveland Indians outfielder Michael Bourn underwent surgery on Tuesday to repair his left hamstring the team announced.

Bourn sustained the injury Sept. 29 at Minnesota while sliding into second base on a steal attempt in the 9th inning of the Indians’ 5-1 Wild Card clinching victory.

Bourn played 3 days later against the Tampa Bay Rays in the A.L. Wild Card playoff where he went 0-4 with a pair of strikeouts while playing center field and hitting leadoff.

The procedure, which was described as “minor” by the team, was performed by Dr. Dan Cooper in Dallas, TX.

Bourn will rehab at his home in Houston before beginning his regular offseason training program in 4-6 weeks.

The Indians signed Bourn to a 4-year $48 million deal last offseason. He hit .263 with 6 home runs, 50 RBI and 23 stolen bases in 130 games this past season.
