Player Profile: Jason Bourgeois

I have two cards of Jason Bourgeois. This one is from 2011 Topps Update Set. 

Playing career: Outfielder Jason Bourgeois is a true journeyman, having played for six different major league teams in the last seven years. He had his most success in Houston in 2010 and 2011. In exactly 162 games with the Astros he hit .269 with 1 HR, 19 RBI and 43 SBs.

Where he is now: After stops with the White Sox, Brewers, Astros, Royals and Rays, it was the Reds’ turn in 2014. In eighteen games with Cincinnati he hit .242 with 0 HR and 1 RBI.

My memories: Boy I hate spelling his name. I have to look it up every single time I type it.

Google Autocomplete results: He is fifth when you type Jason Bou, between Jason Bourne Books and Jason Bourne 4, both of which refer to the Robert Ludlum character. There do not appear to be any other prominent Jason Bourgeoises.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Chris Bourjos.
