Jason Bourgeois heading to 15 day DL

It is being reported that Jason Bourgeois is heading to the 15 day DL with a strained quad that was hurt during one of the three double plays the Astros hit into last night. This is a tough loss as Bourgeois was one of the few Astros who was playing well this season, hitting .311 in the month of June.

He was the Astros’ primary back up for all three outfield positions and even as a back up had racked up 17 stolen bases, which was good for second on the team behind Michael Bourn. The Astros recalled Brian Bogusevic from Triple-A Oklahoma City to fill in for Bourgeois and will split the back up duties with veteran Jason Michaels.
