Rays sign outfielder Jason Bourgeois to minors deal

2 Comments

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.
