Cardinals' Peter Bourjos collects two hits vs. Phillies
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/30/15) Cardinals center fielder Peter Bourjos found himself leading off Wednesday against Phillies pitcher Aaron Harang, against whom he was 7 for 15 with one homer in his career entering the game. He proceded to go 2 for 4 with a triple (off Harang), one RBI and one run in his team's 5-2 win over the Phillies.
"He's got pretty good stuff, but for some reason I have pretty good at-bats against him," Bourjos said about Harang after the game, per FOX Sports Midwest. "It's just something I can't explain."
Bourjos was able to tie the game in the fifth inning with an RBI triple, and the Cardinals went on to score three more runs in the inning and give starter Carlos Martinez all the support he would need. He has hit .214/.313/.357 with four stolen bases in 14 at-bats.
Cardinals' Peter Bourjos draws the start in center field Wednesday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/29/15) Cardinals outfielder Peter Bourjos will start in center field Wednesday against the Phillies, with Jon Jay getting the day off, the team announced.
It will be Bourjos' second start of the year and he is hitting .100 in 10 at-bats this season. Bourjos will bat leadoff, where he is hitting .270 with six home runs and 20 RBI in 48 starts batting leadoff.
The Cardinals are currently the favorites (-180) against Philadelphia.
Bourjos taken off Cardinals paternity list; Anna optioned to minors
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/24/15) The Cardinals activated outfielder Peter Bourjos off the paternity list, and optioned infielder Dean Anna down to Triple-A Memphis on Friday, per the team's official website. Bourjos has been held without a hit in his first four at-bats of the season.
Cardinals promote Harris as Bourjos placed on paternity list
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/21/15) The Cardinals purchased the contract of reliever Mitch Harris from Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday. To clear a roster spot, outfielder Peter Bourjos was placed on the paternity list.
The right-hander Harris had a 2.45 ERA in four relief appearances for Memphis before his promotion Tuesday.
|2014 summary: When the Cardinals acquired Peter Bourjos from the Angels last offseason, the assumption was he'd replace Jon Jay as the team's primary center fielder. But he struggled so badly at the plate that the Cardinals eventually had to pull the plug, limiting him to just giving Jay occasional days off down the stretch.|
Playing time status: The Cardinals have never been sold on Jay in center field, but after their ambitious plan to oust him failed, they might be more inclined to stick with him going forward. Of course, Bourjos has been a competent hitter in the past -- perhaps something more than that in 2011 -- so if he gets off to a good start, he could enter into more of a timeshare with Jay. Then again, prospect Randal Grichuk is also lurking.
2015 outlook: At this point, you should be highly skeptical of Bourjos making a worthwhile contribution in Fantasy. He's done it only once, four years ago, and even then, his shortcomings were evident. And now, he's not even projected for a regular role. You might get a moderate number of steals from him in a best-case scenario, but he's looking like just an NL-only option.
