Peter Bourjos

  1. X-rays negative on Mike Trout’s pinkie finger, should be back Tuesday

    Jul 2, 2012, 8:15 PM EDT

    Mike Trout

    Sure, now that he’s a big star and all, Mike Trout can afford to let a sore pinkie knock him out of the lineup.

    I’m back after a week’s vacation. I wrote up a long sappy version of it last week, but here’s the short version: San Diego for five days, during which I took Mookie and Carlo to their first ever major league game to see the Rangers vs. the Padres last Monday night. It was a doubly…

  3. Peter Bourjos is firmly planted on the Angels’ bench

    Jun 11, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Peter Bourjos has started just two of the Angels’ last nine games as the combination of his poor first two months and Mike Trout‘s arrival pushed the Opening Day center fielder to the bench. Bourjos is an amazing defensive center fielder who last season hit well enough to be one of the best all-around outfielders…

    Cincinnati Reds v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Twins 3, Athletics 2: Holy ninth inning rally, Batman! Josh Willingham hits a two-out, three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth off Brian Fuentes after the Twins were shutout for six innings by Jarrod Parker and two by Jerry Blevins and Grant Balfour.

  5. Vernon Wells needs thumb surgery, will miss 8-10 weeks

    Vernon Wells AP

    The Angels’ outfield logjam is suddenly a lot less complicated. Angels’ television broadcaster Victor Rojas reports that Vernon Wells will have surgery tomorrow to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right thumb. He can resume baseball activities in 8-10 weeks, which means he’ll likely be out until around the start of August. Of…

  6. Vernon Wells likely DL bound with thumb injury

    May 21, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    Vernon Wells

    As if losing a 13-inning game against the Padres on an error-induced walk-off run scored by a pitcher who pinch-hit wasn’t bad enough, the Angels also lost Vernon Wells and Ryan Langerhans to injuries. Wells injured his thumb stealing second base and Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports that he was wearing a cast after the…

  7. Angels and Nationals should consider a smaller trade

    May 11, 2012, 6:41 PM EDT

    Alberto Callaspo

    Many are trying to set the Nationals up with Peter Bourjos after they lost another starting outfielder to injury in Jayson Werth over the weekend. That’d be nice and all, but the artillery is lacking to pull it off. Instead, I’m thinking about a smaller deal here, if the two teams have in fact talked:…

  8. Angels, Nationals reportedly discussing Peter Bourjos trade

    May 11, 2012, 1:29 AM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    We detailed earlier today that Peter Bourjos seems to have gone missing. Now tonight we find that multiple teams are looking for him. The Los Angeles Angels center fielder hasn’t played much since the Angels called up uber-prospect Mike Trout from the minors, losing ground in a crowded outfield race that also includes Vernon Wells,…

  9. Missing persons alert: Peter Bourjos

    May 10, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    Peter Bourjos

    Peter Bourjos is a reigning gold glove winner. Probably the best defensive center fielder in the game.  But the dude has been riding pine like crazy lately: Peter Bourjos’ game-changing speed and Gold Glove-caliber defense don’t do the Angels any good on the bench, but that’s where those tools were again Wednesday night. The center fielder was…

  10. Will Jered Weaver’s no-hitter help Angels turn things around?

    Jered Weaver couldn’t hold back the tears in the aftermath of his first career no-hitter on Wednesday night against the Minnesota Twins. After an emotional celebration with his Angels teammates, he hugged his parents and his wife before taking the microphone to address the crowd. “My mom, my dad, my wife, I mean this is…

    San Diego Padres v San Francisco Giants

    Giants 4, Padres 1: Madison Bumgarner keeps rolling (7.2 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 6K). After the game he explained his recent success by saying “I’m just trying to make pitches.”  I’ve heard that for 30 years and I’m still not quite sure what it means but I always like hearing it for some reason.…

  12. Mike Trout is in the Angels’ starting lineup this afternoon

    Apr 28, 2012, 12:02 PM EDT

    Mike Trout Getty

    The Angels have dropped five straight games and currently sit in last place in the American League West with a 6-14 record, so they are hoping the newly-promoted Mike Trout can provide a much-needed spark for their lineup. According to Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com, Trout will bat leadoff and play left field this afternoon…

  13. Angels release Bobby Abreu, call up Mike Trout

    Bobby Abreu Getty

    Bryce Harper isn’t the only top prospect making his way to the major leagues Saturday. The Angels announced that they have released Bobby Abreu and will call up Mike Trout from Triple-A Salt Lake. As for Abreu, the move appeared inevitable. After a trade with the Indians fell through at the end of spring training,…

    Texas Rangers starting pitcher Yu Darvish pitches against the New York Yankees in Arlington, Texas

    Rangers 2, Yankees 0: Yu Darvish finally arrives. Eight and a third innings, ten strikeouts and a big goose egg in the runs column against the best offense in baseball. Rays 5, Angels 0: David Price: five-hit shutout. Albert Pujols: 0 for 4. He has the lowest slugging percentage of anyone in last night’s Angels…

  15. Mark Trumbo is starting in left field tonight

    Apr 20, 2012, 7:50 PM EDT

    Mark Trumbo Getty

    Mark Trumbo has been nothing short of a mess at third base, so the Angels have decided to try something new. According to Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times, Trumbo will start in left field tonight against the Orioles. This is actually his first major league start in left field, though he played two…

  16. Jeff Gray and the absurdity of pitcher “wins”

    Apr 12, 2012, 5:17 PM EDT

    charlie-sheen-winning

    Twins reliever Jeff Gray is a 30-year-old journeyman who, as of yesterday afternoon, had one career victory as a big leaguer. Now he has three career victories and how he got there is hilarious. Last night Gray entered the game with two outs in the seventh inning and the Twins down 5-3. He retired Peter…

  17. Angels’ logjam means Mike Trout is likely bound for minors

    Feb 29, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Mike Trout

    One way for the Angels to lessen their first base/corner outfield/designated hitter logjam would be to have stud prospect Mike Trout begin the season in the minors and it sure sounds like manager Mike Scioscia thinks that would be a smart idea. Vernon Wells, Peter Bourjos, and Torii Hunter are cemented as the Angels’ starting…

  18. Peter Bourjos will likely need hip surgery after the season

    Feb 27, 2012, 2:49 PM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Peter Bourjos made certain to say that he’s currently feeling “good, normal, 100 percent” but the Angels center fielder also said today that he’ll likely need hip surgery after the season. Bourjos told Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times that he would’ve had the operation to repair labrum fraying during the offseason, except he…

  19. Running down the rosters: Los Angeles Angels

    Baseball player Albert Pujols wears an Angels cap after he is introduced by the Los Angeles Angels during a news conference at Angels Stadium in Anaheim

    Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll be projecting 25-man rosters for each of the 30 teams. I’m starting today with the Angels. The winter’s biggest spenders, the Angels are now again poised to threaten a Rangers team that appeared to be in pretty good position to set up its own little mini-dynasty in the…

  20. Kendrys Morales is looking good

    Jan 27, 2012, 9:24 AM EDT

    Kendry Morales homer

    Kendrys Morales hasn’t played since breaking his leg in May of 2010, but if the reports from Tempe, Arizona are to be believed, he’s going to be playing, and playing well, pretty darn soon: “I’ve been hitting with him every day (at the Angels’ minor-league complex in Tempe, Ariz.) and he looks strong,” Angels centerfielder…

  21. Angels won’t be willing to move Peter Bourjos

    Dec 11, 2011, 10:00 PM EDT

    Peter Bourjos

    The Angels have seven players for the three outfield spots and DH in the wake of the Albert Pujols signing, but they’re not going to consider trading Peter Bourjos, GM Jerry DiPoto said. “Peter Bourjos is a guy we’re going to hold,” Dipoto told FOXSports.com. “He’s one of the better defenders in the league, a 0-to-3 (in years…

  22. The new Angels lineup

    Dec 8, 2011, 7:30 PM EDT

    Vernon Wells, Torii Hunter

    The guess here is that Mike Scioscia is going do a lot of scratching out starting nines on the back of napkins over the next couple of months. Here’s the Angels’ current top 11, along with their 2011 numbers and all the positions they could see action at. Chris Iannetta: .238/.370/.414, 14 HR, 55 RBI,…
