Bourn is out of the lineup Sunday against the Reds. With southpaw Brandon Finnegan on the mound for the opposing Reds, manager Chip Hall will rest all of his left-handed bats, including Bourn. The recently reinstated Chris Owings will get the start in center field in his place.
Bourn went 3-for-4 with a run and an RBI in Sunday's win over the Dodgers. Bourn had a nice weekend series against the Dodgers, going 6-for-14 (.429 average) with four runs and three RBI. He's getting regular playing time in center and often batting second in front of Paul Goldschmidt, which results in plenty of good pitches to hit.
Bourn went 2-for-5 with a double and two-run homer in Saturday's 11-6 loss to the Rockies. The veteran took Rockies reliever Justin Miller deep in the seventh for only his second homer of 2016, plating Jean Segura in the process. It was the 33-year-old's second consecutive multi-hit effort, and the three RBI brought his June total to nine. Despite the recent success, Bourn has largely struggled in June, particularly when compared to the .343/.425/.457 line he generated in May. Those numbers have dropped to .208/.312/.565, respectively, in the current month, but Bourn still provides some decent fantasy potential given his typical spot near the top of the lineup.
Bourn is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's tilt with Colorado. Bourn is getting a maintenance day as the D-backs are electing to with Brito Socrates in center field. Bourn has hit a rough patch in his season, recording only one multi-hit game in his last 23 while slashing .173/.222/.227. He's struck out 27 times during that span.
Bourn is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Phillies, according to MLB.com's Steve Gilbert. The veteran Bourn will get a day off with the Diamondbacks and Phillies playing an early afternoon affair Monday. Bourn started 11 of the previous 13 games before Monday's in center field, and he figures to continue seeing ample action there with fellow center field options Chris Owings and David Peralta on the disabled list. Socrates Brito will start in center field Monday and figures to serve as Bourn's backup until Owings and/or Peralta are ready to return.
