Has another steal tonight and has been a terror on the basepaths all season. If the PT is there he's going to be a nice source of steals if he's available in your league.

I picked him up the second I saw Lee get hurt, I dont see how the Astros can ever bench him. I was thinking maybe Wallace back to 3B?

the guy could easily run away with the SB title if he gets the playing time

Not sure what night but he had a game at 2b, not sure if it was a start or late inning replacement. I'd love if he got 3b instead after losing Zimmerman and Freese already :~(

apparently he might get some time at 2B.
rotoworld.com
Zachary Levine of the Houston Chronicle thinks Jason Bourgeois might start seeing some playing time at second base.
He admits to just "throwing the idea out there," so it doesn't sound like he's heard manager Brad Mills mention the possibility or anything. It makes some sense, though, as Bourgeois came up through the minors as a second baseman and played a few innings there for the 'Stros last season. Plus, he's batting .412 with 12 stolen bases, while Bill Hall is hitting just .212/.275/.313 with one home run while striking out 37 times in 99 at-bats. The speedy Bourgeois would be an even more interesting add in fantasy leagues if he can gain second base eligibility.


I also picked him up when Lee got hurt. now that Lee is back I was wondering about his playing time. I was wondering if they could go with a platoon in CF with Bourn. Bourn this season is TERRIBLE against LH pitching. thinking about holding him anyway, maybe it's just a matter of time before Lee is traded?

Starting at 2B today. Probably going to be a 2B/MI eligible player.

Jason Bourgeois is starting at second base for the Astros Saturday.
Good call by Zachary Levine of the Houston Chronicle, who predicted we might be seeing Bourgeois at second base soon. The speedy outfielder has swiped 12 bags already this season while hitting .412 over just 51 at-bats. He's already helping fantasy owners with his speed and will be even more valuable if he gains second base

wohoo!!
