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.

Jason Bourgeois had a solid night in Friday's loss to the Angels, going 2-for-3 with a run scored, RBI and two stolen bases.

With Lorenzo Cain sidelined for the remainder of the season, Bourgeois and David Lough will share time in center field. He possesses tremendous speed and could immediately become a major asset in mixed leagues should he find his way into regular at-bats. He's already stolen five bases in just 35 at-bats on the season.
