6 Comments

From John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer comes word that Reds outfielder Jason Bourgeois suffered a fracture in his left shoulder while sliding into a base and will be sidelined for the next 4-6 weeks.

Brennan Boesch, who signed a minor league contract with the Reds this winter, is now probably a lock for the Opening Day roster. He’s been working at all three outfield spots and first base this spring.

Bourgeois, 30, was 7-for-19 (.368) with an .895 OPS through seven Cactus League games.
