Out since June 29 with a fractured wrist, Peter Bourjos‘ return timetable has been pushed back after X-rays showed the bone hasn’t fully healed.

Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports that Bourjos will likely miss an additional 1-2 weeks, which rules out the Angels center fielder coming off the disabled list this month. He hasn’t even picked up a bat yet.

Bourjos has hit .333 with his usual amazing defense this season, but he’s been limited to just 40 games due to the fractured wrist and a previous hamstring injury, leaving Mike Trout to man center field.

    Between injuries to Vargas, Bourjos, Hanson, Weaver, Pujols, Aybar, and Callaspo, as well as the general lack of bang for the buck the Angels are getting from Pujols, Hamilton, and Blanton, this is just Not Their Year.

    I wanted to be hopeful going into the second half, but I’ll just content myself with watching Mike Trout fly.

    Tough year for Bourjos. I’ve always felt he’d be able to shine if he got the chance, and when healthy this year he’s played well. I hope he can stay healthy next year.

    Man I really feel bad for the Angels…they gotta put Mike Trout in centerfield? What a disaster of epic proportions…
