Diamondbacks reassigned OF Jason Bougeois to minor league camp.

Jason Bourgeois slugged a three-run homer in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Angels.

The Diamondbacks were trailing 2-0 before Bourgeois put them ahead in the sixth. The Angels came back to tie in the seventh inning before Arizona pulled away for good in the eighth. Bourgeois, in camp with the D’Backs on a minor league deal, owns a rough .253/.300/.326 batting line in the majors. The 34-year-old appeared in 68 games with the Reds last season, but he’s a long shot to make the Opening Day roster.

Jason Bourgeois went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Sunday's loss to the Brewers.

Bourgeois had himself a three-hit game while scoring three runs in Saturday's win over the Brew Crew, but Sunday's starter Wily Peralta made sure he didn't repeat that feat. A fractured left shoulder kept the 33-year-old outfielder out of action until late June. Since his return, he's hit .247/.297/.318 with a homer, eight RBI and 11 runs scored. Bourgeois has never played in more than 93 games in a season.

Reds activated OF Jason Bourgeois from the 60-day disabled list.

Bourgeois will serve as the 26th man for the Reds' second game Sunday versus the Mets after the suspended contest is completed. The speedy outfielder has been out all season with a fractured left shoulder.

Jason Bourgeois (shoulder) is beginning a rehab assignment with Triple-A Louisville on Monday.

Bourgeois fractured his left shoulder during spring training and is finally ready for game action again. The speedy outfielder probably isn't a given to be added to the major league roster once he's done with his rehab.

Reds placed OF Jason Bourgeois on the 60-day disabled list with a fractured left shoulder.

Bourgeois isn't expected to return until sometime in May as he recovers from a fractured left shoulder he sustained with diving head first into a base. Brennan Boesch will fulfill a reserve outfielder role while he's sidelined.

Jason Bourgeois will be sidelined 4-6 weeks after an MRI revealed a fracture in his left shoulder.

Bourgeois suffered the injury when he dove into a base and the ailment flared up on him during Saturday's game. Brennan Boesch should pretty much have a roster spot sealed up now with Bourgeois slated to miss the first month or so of the season.

Jason Bourgeois had an MRI on his shoulder after leaving Saturday's game.

Bourgeois initially was believed to have sustained a hand injury, but the Reds clarified that it was actually the outfielder's shoulder that forced him from the game. The results of the MRI aren't in yet. It's not good news for the 33-year-old, who was trying to make the Reds as a reserve outfielder.

Jason Bourgeois left Saturday's Cactus League game after being hit on the hand by a pitch.

Bourgeois was attempting to lay down a bunt when he was hit by the pitch. He stopped before reaching first base in obvious pain, leaving with trainer Paul Lessard. The Reds should update his status shortly.

Jason Bourgeois went 2-for-3 with a solo home run against the Brewers on Thursday.

Bourgeois victimized Kyle Lohse in the fifth inning for his first spring homer. Bourgeois doesn't have much of a shot to make the 25-man roster, but if he plays well at Triple-A, he'll be an option for the Reds if they should need outfield depth during the season.

Reds signed OF Jason Bourgeois to a minor league contract.

The 31-year-old speedster had just 16 at-bats in nine games for the Rays in 2013, but hit .290/.343/.368 with two homers, 61 RBI and 22 stolen bases in 90 games at Triple-A Durham. He has excelled against left-handed pitching in his career, and could be looked at as a reserve outfielder and platoon option for the Reds.
