Update on Bourn's condition

In Zach Levine's Notes column we read that Michel Bourn probably won't bat again in the final five games, but he could come back to pinch-run.

"I might be able to get back in the game to run. I don't think I'm going to swing the bat because I haven't swung one. If I swing it four times a game it might irritate (the injury). And I've got to take (batting practice) and do all that first."

Our question: Why in the world would the Astros even let him try to get garbage time at the end of the season coming off a moderately-serious injury? Ridiculous.
