CLEVELAND (AP) - Free agent outfielder Michael Bourn has agreed to a four-year, $48 million contract with the Cleveland Indians.
Bourn, an All-Star with Atlanta last season, must pass a physical later this week in Goodyear, Ariz., before the deal can be completed. Bourn batted .274 with nine homers, 57 RBIs and 42 steals last season for the Braves.
As long as there isn't a hangup, the 30-year-old Bourn, who has remained on the market all winter, will move into the Indians' starting lineup. He played center field last season and would give an immediate boost to a Cleveland team that has reloaded with the acquisition of free agent Nick Swisher, manager Terry Francona and starter Brett Myers.
Fox Sports first reported Bourn's deal.
