Reports: Indians Sign Free Agent OF Michael Bourn
GOODYEAR, Arizona — The Cleveland Indians have reportedly reached an agreement with free agent outfielder Michael Bourn.
Multiple sources, including FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, are reporting that Bourn has agreed to four-year contract with the Indians worth $48 million dollars, pending a physical.
Bourn, 30 made the National League All-Star team last season as a member of the Atlanta Braves. He hit .274 in 2012 and scored 96 runs with 42 stolen bases.
He is also a two-time Gold Glove Winner in centerfield.
If Bourn passes his physical, Indians must surrender a second or third round pick in the 2013 amateur draft for signing him away from Atlanta.
They have already forfeited a second round pick by signing free agent outfielder Nick Swisher to a four-year $56 million deal.
