Report: Indians' Michael Bourn could be out 5-7 days after lacerating finger
Cleveland Indians centerfielder Michael Bourn left Sunday's game in the eighth inning after White Sox reliever Matt Thornton stepped on his hand, causing a laceration to his right index finger that required five stitches.
The Indians officially called Bourn day-to-day, but MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reported he will not play until his stitches are removed, which could be in five to seven days.
Bourn, who signed a four-year, $48-million deal in the offseason, slid into first base in an attempt to beat out an infield grounder fielded by first baseman Adam Dunn.
The 30-year-old, two-time All-Star led off the bottom of the first with his second home run of the season and finished 3 for 4 in a 3-1 Indians loss. Bourn is hitting .333 in the early going.
