Angels outfielder Peter Bourjos was hit on the hand with a 91 MPH fastball from Astros starter Jordan Lyles in the top of the fourth this afternoon. He was taken out of the lineup after the inning and replaced by J.B. Shuck. Bourjos left to have x-rays taken on his hand, reports Mike DiGiovanna of the L.A. Times.
Bourjos had already missed six weeks between April 30 and June 9 with a strained left hamstring and returned to the Angels lineup for the first time this afternoon since jamming his left thumb while sliding in a game against the Pirates on Sunday. Bourjos is hitting .326 on the year, a marked improvement over his 2012 season, when he hit .220.
