Rays Place Desmond Jennings on the DL – Recall Jason Bourgeois

Jennings slideThe Tampa Bay Rays placed center-fielder Desmond Jennings on the 15 day DL with a fractured middle finger on his left hand.

Jennings hurt the finger Saturday on a slide against the Giants in extra innings and it was thought to be a relatively minor sprain.

Jason Bourgeois was recalled from Triple-A Durham to take his place on the roster.

Sam Fuld played center field for Tampa Bay on Sunday and could find himself in platoon situation with  Bourgeois.

Bourgeois has a career slash line of .261/.306/.324 over parts of five major league seasons and was hitting .291 in Durham this season, with 21 stolen bases.

Tampa Bay is a half game behind the Boston Red Sox heading into a five game west coast road trip which begins tomorrow in Arizona
