Cincinnati Reds OF Marlon Byrd is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, July 28, against the St. Louis Cardinals. OF Jason Bourgeois will start in left field and hit leadoff against LHP Jaime Garcia.
Fantasy Tip: Bourgeois ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is riding a three-game hit streak, but he's still hitting just .222 on the season, and he won't be worth consideration.

Cincinnati Reds OF Jay Bruce is out of the lineup for the first day of a doubleheader Wednesday, July 22, with OF Jason Bourgeois hitting second.
Fantasy Tip: Bourgeois ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is just 3-for-18 on the year and isn't worth the flyer on FantasyScore.

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 12. OF Jason Bourgeois is playing center field and batting eighth against Miami Marlins SP Dan Haren Sunday.
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Hamilton ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats Sunday. He enters the All-Star break with 41 runs and a league-leading 44 stolen bases but otherwise underwhelming fantasy numbers (three home runs, 19 RBI and .220/.269/.287 slash line). Bourgeois ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore players Sunday.

Cincinnati Reds OF Billy Hamilton is out of the starting lineup Sunday, July 5, against the Milwaukee Brewers. OF Jason Bourgeois will start in center field and hit eighth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Bourgeois ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has one single and two strikeouts through four plate appearances in the majors this season. Bourgeois was hitting .309 at Class AAA, but he shouldn't be used in any FantasyScore contests until he proves himself.

Cincinnati Reds OF Jason Bourgeois (shoulder) will miss 4-6 weeks with a fracture in his left shoulder.
Fantasy Tip: Bourgeois carried less fantasy value because he would be a fourth outfielder at best on the Reds, and this injury makes it more likely someone else wins the job. Avoid drafting Bourgeois until he establishes a presence.

The Cincinnati Reds plan to call up RP J.J. Hoover, P Carlos Contreras, SP Daniel Corcino, 2B Jake Elmore, SP David Holmberg, C Tucker Barnhart, 1B Donald Lutz, OF Yorman Rodriguez, OF Jason Bourgeois and P Ryan Dennick Tuesday, Sept. 2.

Cincinnati Reds OF Jason Bourgeois (hamstring) has yet to appear in a Cactus League spring game due to a strained right hamstring. He is trying to earn a spot as a reserve outfielder, and might get into a game as soon as this week.

The Tampa Bay Rays purchased the contract of OF Jason Bourgeois from Triple-A Durham Monday, Aug. 5.

The Tampa Bay Rays placed OF Desmond Jennings (finger) on the 15-day disabled list Monday, Aug. 5. He missed the game Sunday, Aug. 4, due to what the team thought was a sprain of his left middle finger. Further tests by a hand specialist Monday revealed a small fracture.
Fantasy Tip: With Jennings out, and OFs Brandon Guyer and Rich Thompson hurt at Triple-A Durham, the team turns to Jason Bourgeois. He will likely serve as the fourth outfielder, perhaps splitting time with Sam Fuld. Matt Joyce and Wil Myers will continue to see regular playing time at the corner outfield spots.
