By Sheldon Ocker Published: February 11, 2013

The Indians keep pulling surprises, the latest coming tonight when several sources confirmed that they have signed free-agent outfielder Michael Bourn to a long-term deal.

Upon passing a physical, Bourn will be rewarded with a four-year, $48 million guaranteed contract with a vesting option that would increase the value of the deal to $60 million.

Last year with the Atlanta Braves, Bourn batted  .274 with nine home runs, 57 RBI and 96 runs. He also stole 42 bases but was caught 13 times for a success rate of 76 percent. He also struck out 155 times last season.
