The Cleveland Indians have activated outfielder Michael Bourn from the disabled list and optioned Nyjer Morgan to their triple-A team to make room on the roster, according to Matt Snyder of CBSSports.com.

Bourn has missed all of the 2014 season so far with a hamstring injury that he suffered in spring training. He is currently in the second year of a four year contract with Cleveland that is worth $48 million.

Morgan signed a minor league contract with the Indians this offseason, and has hit the ball well to start the season with the major league club, going 8-for-23 with four RBIs.
