Bourgeois claimed off waivers by Houston, Burns, Stern agree to minor league deals


Apparently the Brewers tried to pass Bourgeois (a Houston native) through waivers to outright him back to the minors, and he got claimed. Meanwhile, Mike Burns gets little more than an extreme outside shot at making the rotation next spring, and Adam Stern, who spent most of 2009 in AA and will be 30 before spring training, remains on board as roster filler in an organization that needs warm bodies to play center field.
