Desmond Jennings To DL With Broken Finger
Posted By Steve Kinsella On August 6, 2013 @ 9:11 AM In Florida News,Insider Main,Legacy,main feature,MLB | No Comments
The Tampa Bay Rays have placed Desmond Jennings  on the 15-day disabled list with a fracture in his left middle finger. With both Brandon Guyer  and Rich Thompson  on the disabled list themselves the Rays will look to Triple-A Durham Bulls outfielder Jason Bourgeois .
Bourgeois is 31 years old, bats right handed, and has played parts of 5 seasons in the major leagues and has a career batting average of .261. His best season was back in 2011 with the Houston Astros playing in 93 games and hitting .292 while stealing 31 bases.
Currently with the Bulls he is hitting .291 (95 for 236) and has 21 stolen bases in 26 attempts. To make room on the 40 man roster it is anticipated that the Rays will move Brandon Guyer  from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.
More than likely Sam Fuld  will receive most of the time in center field while Jennings is out.
