It’s easy to forget now, but it wasn’t too long ago that speedy outfielder Michael Bourn was regarded as a really valuable fantasy option.

Today, after he and his now-healthy hamstring finally made their season debut Wednesday night, the 20th-rounder remains a free agent in a quarter of ESPN standard leagues. Talk about a fall from grace!
