Peter Bourjos is feeling much better

Jul 15, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT


Angels’ center fielder Peter Bourjos is looking to be back in the Angels’ lineup sometime this weekend, feeling much better after some rehab for his hamstring.

According to the Orange County Register, top prospect Mike Trout is likely to stay with the team for a little bit overlapping with Bourjos return, but it probably means that he’s heading back to the minors.  Which isn’t too big a deal really. Dude is a beast, but he’s also 1 for 10 with a walk in three games since being called up.  One doesn’t judge anything based on such a microscopic sample size, but even if he went 10 for 10, it would be hard to say that he couldn’t benefit with a bit more time down on the farm.

    Trouts minor league numbers are insane. Better off letting him get acclimated to the majors this year and then open next season with him in the lineup. As you mentioned three games isn’t enough of a sample size to determine if he’s overmatched or not. Let him play. He’s gonna be a monster.

    The Angels are fun to watch.

    Good thing nobody judged Willie Mays when he started out 1-for-26. Trout runs like Mays and hits with power.
