CLEVELAND — Criticized for not spending enough on free agents in recent years, the Indians splurged on another star.
The club agreed to terms with outfielder Michael Bourn on a four-year, $48 million contract.
It’s the second major deal this winter for the Indians, who signed free agent Nick Swisher to a four-year, $56 million contract in January.
Bourn, who was an All-Star with Atlanta last season, must pass a physical later this week in Goodyear, Ariz., before the deal can be completed.
Bourn batted .274 with nine homers, 57 RBIs and 42 steals last season for the Braves.
