Bourjos, who went 0-for-3 in Tuesday's 6-1 loss to the Yankees, is hitting just .194 over 33 September plate appearances.

EDGE Analysis

The reserve outfielder is hitting just .202 over 90 second-half plate appearances and has equaled a career low with 12 RBI over 96 games this season. However, he's provided some decent pop while compiling 16 extra-base hits (nine doubles, two triples and five home runs).

Bourjos will start in center field and lead off Sunday against the Yankees, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bourjos is picking up a second straight start with the Yankees deploying another left-handed starter (Jordan Montgomery) for the series finale. Though Bourjos provided a solo home run Saturday, he's unlikely to see his role change even with another successful showing at the dish Sunday, as he remains locked into the short side of a platoon in center field with Mallex Smith.

Bourjos went 1-for-5 with an RBI double and a run in Thursday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran outfielder continues to see frequent playing time and provide serviceable production, with Thursday's two-bagger marking his third extra-base hit in July and his 11th overall in 118 plate appearances this season. Bourjos has shown more power than usual this season by slugging four home runs in 61 games, after needing 119 and 117 contests, respectively, to reach that total in the 2014 and 2015 campaigns in St. Louis.

Bourjos went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran outfielder's 360-foot shot to left off Chris Sale in the fifth snapped a 1-1 tie and represented his first homer since June 8. Bourjos continues to be reasonably productive in his part-time role, and he's opened July by hitting in three of his first four games. Factoring in Thursday's round tripper, Bourjos is slashing .247/.300/.441 and has nine extra-base hits (four doubles, one triple, four homers) over 100 plate appearances.

Bourjos will start in left field and lead off Wednesday against the Blue Jays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

With southpaw Francisco Liriano on the hill for the opposition, the lefty-hitting Mallex Smith, who had led off in the previous two contests, will move down to sixth in the order, allowing Bourjos to settle into the table-setting role. While it's a favorable lineup spot for Bourjos, the veteran has turned in sub-.300 on-base percentages in each of the last four seasons and shouldn't be counted on to make much of an impact in DFS contests.

Bourjos (elbow) went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs in Thursday's 7-5 in over the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran outfielder did damage out of the nine-hole in his first game back from a disabled list stint due to an elbow injury, blasting a 422-foot shot to left in the fourth that gave the Rays a 6-0 lead at the time. Bourjos' .217 average has plenty of room for improvement, but he's able to contribute the occasional round tripper in his part-time role.

Bourjos (elbow) was activated by the team on Thursday and slotted into the starting lineup against the White Sox, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bourjos will be manning left field and batting ninth during his first game back since May 28. It is a positive sign that the 30-year-old was able to return as soon as he was eligible to come off the 10-day disabled list, especially with a few rehab games under his belt.

Bourjos reports that his elbow is back to normal and he's expected to return to the Rays on Thursday, the first day he's eligible to come off the disabled list, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bourjos was 0-for-4 in his second game with High-A Charlotte on Monday night, but the important thing is that rest and a cortisone shot he received last week have eliminated the pain he was feeling in his elbow. The veteran is slated to play a full game in left field on Tuesday and then return to the big-league club for the final game of a three-game set versus the White Sox on Thursday.

Bourjos (elbow) was 0-for-4 with a strikeout in High-A Charlotte's 3-2 loss to the Clearwater on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Bourjos was participating in the first of what is expected to be at least two rehab games with the Stone Crabs. The veteran outfielder went on the 10-day disabled list on May 30 but his stay is currently expected to be limited to the minimum span of time for that designation.
