FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Orioles remain interested in Michael Bourn.
In other words, nothing has changed from a month ago. Bourn, 34, made a favorable impression with the Orioles down the stretch last season by batting .283/.358/.435 with two home runs, eight RBI and two steals in 24 games. The club just acquired Seth Smith in recent days and continue to be linked to Mark Trumbo, so Bourn would likely be more of a fourth outfielder and backup center fielder. Jan 10 - 8:29 AM

Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports that Michael Bourn is "still in play" for the Orioles.

He's not their main target, but the Orioles would like to add two outfielders and Bourn could be the second one. Bourn batted .283/.358/.435 with two home runs in 24 games with the Orioles last season. He'll turn 34 later this month.

Michael Bourn is starting in right field and batting eighth in Tuesday night's American League Wild Card Game against the Blue Jays.

The full O's lineup for this loser-goes-home tilt: Adam Jones CF, Hyun Soo Kim LF, Manny Machado 3B, Mark Trumbo DH, Matt Wieters C, Chris Davis 1B, Jonathan Schoop 2B, Michael Bourn RF, JJ Hardy SS. Baltimore is throwing Chris Tillman versus Toronto right-hander Marcus Stroman.

Michael Bourn went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run and a walk in Sunday's win over the Tigers.

The Orioles picked up Bourn via a trade with the Diamondbacks at the end of August. Since joining the club, he has now homered twice in a mere 12 at-bats. He had managed just three home runs over 329 at-bats prior to being shipped over to the East Coast. Despite this mini-surge with the O's, there is no fantasy intrigue here.

Orioles acquired OF Michael Bourn from the Diamondbacks for OF Jason Heinrich.

Bourn's bat isn't particularly live these days: The 33-year-old outfielder owns a .261/.307/.362 triple-slash to pair with three homers, 30 RBI, and 13 steals across 329 at-bats in 2016. Along with Drew Stubbs -- whom the O's picked up following his release from the Rangers -- Bourn will add to the outfield depth in Baltimore, though his fantasy value is next to nonexistent at this juncture, even in deeper AL-only formats.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Orioles are attempting to trade for Michael Bourn.

The Orioles padded their outfield depth by claiming Drew Stubbs (released by the Rangers) on Wednesday, but Rosenthal is reporting they are still considering other options on that front, including Bourn. The veteran is slashing .261/.307/.362 with three homers, 30 RBI and 13 steals over 329 at-bats this season.

Michael Bourn went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two total RBI in Sunday's loss to the Red Sox.

Bourn cranked a solo homer in the fourth inning to put the D-Backs on the scoreboard. They trailed 9-1 after that dinger. He would later come through with an RBI single in the eighth. They trailed 16-2 after that RBI knock. It was that kind of an afternoon for Arizona. Bourn is slashing .256/.306/.359 with three homers and 28 RBI for the season as a whole. He holds little fantasy intrigue outside of deeper NL-only formats.

Michael Bourn went 2-for-3 with an RBI, a stolen base and a run scored Saturday against the Red Sox.

The steal was the 11th for Bourn in 14 tries, and he's now got multi-hit games in three of his last four starts. There's reason to wonder why the 33-year-old is a fixture in the D'backs lineup -- they're 20 games below .500 and he's hitting .252/.303/.346 overall -- but Bourn has settled into the second spot in the order and is an NL-only factor as such.

Michael Bourn went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and three RBI in Saturday's loss to the Rockies.

Bourn muscled up for his second home run of the season in the seventh inning. He's cooled after his torrid May, as the 33-year-old is now batting .250/.309/.357 with 15 RBI and 15 runs scored in 35 games overall.

Michael Bourn is not in Monday's lineup versus the Dodgers.

David Peralta will make the start in center field and will be flanked by Peter O'Brien in left field and Yasmany Tomas in right. It's hardly the strongest defensive unit behind Zack Greinke.

Michael Bourn went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Friday’s victory over the Cardinals.

Bourn, who joined the Diamondbacks last week, drove in a run with a double in the fifth inning before adding an RBI single in a five-run eighth. He has started a pair of games in center field while hitting out of the No. 2 spot in the order. We’re not expecting much here, but Bourn swiped 17 games in 141 games last season and could carve out some value in deeper fantasy formats for those desperate for speed.

Michael Bourn is starting in center field and batting second Monday against the Yankees.

Bourn was called up from Double-A on Sunday after David Peralta hit the disabled list and he should get an extended opportunity in center field. The 33-year-old batted just .238/.310/.282 between the Indians and Braves last season, but he could be an interesting target in deeper fantasy leagues for those in need of a speed boost. He finds himself in a good lineup and in a hitter-friendly home ballpark.

Diamondbacks purchased the contract of OF Michael Bourn from Double-A Mobile.

It's been a patchwork operation for the D'Backs in center field since A.J. Pollock (elbow) went down, and it seemed like only a matter of time that Bourn would be promoted after he was inked to a minor league deal last week. The veteran outfielder has hit .281/.344/.368 with two steals in 64 plate appearances in the minors. Bourn has hit only .253/.313/.336 in the majors the last three seasons, but he should see starts in center field and is worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues.
Sun, May 15, 2016 01:17:00 PM

Diamondbacks signed OF Michael Bourn to a minor league contract; assigned him to Double-A Mobile.

Bourn was just given his release by the Blue Jays on Monday and it didn't take him long to find a new home. The 33-year-old is headed to the minor leagues for now, but given the questions in center field for the Diamondbacks, it would be no surprise if he eventually finds his way on the major league roster. We just don't have high hopes here.

Blue Jays released OF Michael Bourn.

Bourn had been hitting the ball pretty well for the Blue Jays' affiliate in the High-A Florida State League and will now try to turn that hot start into a better opportunity with a different organization. It's not clear whether he has a new deal already lined up. Bourn, 33, batted .238/.310/.282 with 17 stolen bases in 141 games last season between the Indians and Braves.
