MLB trade deadline:

Indians place Bourn on DL

The SportsXchange

The Cleveland Indians placed outfielder Michael Bourn on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with a left hamstring strain.

The club selected the contract of outfielder Tyler Holt from Triple-A Columbus to take Bourn's spot on the 25-man roster.

Bourn was injured while running the bases in the eighth inning of Saturday's 7-3 win over the Kansas City Royals.

This marks Bourn's fourth career stint on the DL. He previously missed the first 13 games of this season with the same injury.

Bourn is batting .267 with 37 runs, nine doubles, seven triples, three home runs and 21 RBIs in 66 games.

Holt, 25, has split this season between Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus. He is batting .302 with 38 runs, nine doubles, two homers and 12 RBIs with Columbus since his May 26 promotion.
