 CLEVELAND (AP) - The Indians have activated center fielder Michael Bourn from the 15-day disabled list.
Bourn has been slowed by a nagging hamstring injury all season. He has been on the DL since July 6 because of the hamstring, which he had surgery on last October. He recently had rehab stints with Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus.
Bourn is batting .267 with 7 triples, 3 home runs, 21 RBIs and 37 runs in his second season with Cleveland.
He's returning to the Indians in time for the opener of a three-game series with the AL East-leading Baltimore Orioles. The Indians head into the weekend six games out of first place in the AL Central.
The speedy Bourn will take the roster spot vacated Thursday when reliever John Axford was awarded to the Pittsburgh Pirates on waivers.
