Playing A Little Pepper

Desmond Jennings was placed on the DL with a broken finger. Jason Bourgeois was called up to take his place. Bourgeois was hitting .291 with a .336 OBP and 21 stolen bases at triple-A Durham. Originally drafted in the second round of the 2000 draft, he has played parts of each of the last five seasons in the majors, most recently with the Royals last year. A childhood friend of Carl Crawford, Bourgeois will wear no. 13. Ben Francisco, who played 24 games for the Rays last season, was the last player to wear no. 13. To make room on the 40-man roster, the Rays moved Alex Cobb to the 60-day disabled list. That means Cobb cannot return before Aug. 15…Sam Fuld will start in center field and Ben Zobrist will make his first start of the season in left field.
