As noted by Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, the Rays have signed outfielder Jason Bourgeois to a minor league contract. It does not come with an invitation to spring training, meaning the 30-year-old has little chance of cracking the Opening Day roster.
Bourgeois hit .258/.303/.323 with no home runs and five RBI in 66 plate appearances this summer for the Royals. They designated him for assignment shortly after the season and he elected free agency.
The 30-year-old has a .630 career OPS in the bigs.
Longtime Angels and Cardinals outfielder Jim Edmonds shared on his Instagram story that he is being tested for coronavirus.
The four-time All-Star, who now works as a broadcaster for Fox Sports Midwest, has not posted an update on the results of his test.
If you want to learn more about COVID-19 or think you might need to be tested, give the CDC’s site about the virus a read. Informing yourself is the most important step. Washing your hands and staying home, if possible, is the best way to protect yourself.
