Jason Michaels Injury Puts Outfielder On Disabled List

Bad news for all of you Jason Michaels owners in fantasy leagues across the country. After diving for a fly ball in Saturday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers, the Houston Astros have decided to put the reserve outfielder on the 15-day disabled list with a subluxation of his left shoulder, which is a partial or incomplete dislocation. Ouch.

To take Michaels' roster spot, the Astros have called up Brian Bogusevic, who was a former first-round pick as a pitcher before converting to the outfield in 2008. Bogusevic is a singles hitter with a good eye, though he doesn't hit for a lot of power -- his career line for the Astros' AAA affiliates is .272/.355/.388.

Michaels shares time on the bench with Jason Bourgeois behind a starting outfield of Carlos Lee, Michael Bourn, and Hunter Pence. The 35-year-old has had a surprisingly lengthy career, playing in 953 games for four different teams over the past 11 seasons. He was hitting .111/.200/.111 in 18 at-bats so far in 2011.
