|Cardinals will not try to change Peter Bourjos |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(2/16/14) Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said he will not try to curb center fielder Peter Bourjos' aggressiveness in the field, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
"I’m not sure I ever want ever to ask somebody not to play their hardest," Matheny said. "If he’s trying to make a play, when you start asking a guy not to be as aggressive as he can or take away from what he knows is right or believes is right, you may be setting him up for injury. Controlled aggressiveness in the field is part of what makes him as good as he is. I’m not going to make a strong statement to him in that regard."
Bourjos missed most of last season with the Angels due to a broken right wrist and a hamstring injury, but he said he's never been hurt trying to make a play at the outfield wall.
"Knock on wood," Bourjos said. "If I feel like I’ve got a good opportunity to catch a ball, I’m going to catch it. I take a lot of pride in everything I do and especially my defense. I don’t like balls falling out there."
|At this stage of his career, Peter Bourjos is known more for his defense than offense. It's a big reason why the Cardinals considered him an upgrade over Jon Jay this offseason. Still, he was looking to change that last year, batting .313 with two doubles, two triples and two homers over his first 22 games, but then he pulled up lame with a strained hamstring in late April, sidelining him for the next five weeks. His season didn't go off the rails, though, until late June, when he took a pitch off the right wrist. He fought his way back six weeks later but clearly wasn't right and ultimately resigned to season-ending surgery, having a pin inserted into his wrist. All in all, it was a lost season for Bourjos, but if you eliminate that three-week period when he tried to play with a bad wrist, he appeared to make some strides at the plate. He still swings at everything, but in the thick of his prime at age 27, a certain amount of progression is to be expected. Particularly in leagues that reward doubles and triples, Bourjos has some sleeper appeal. He has the upside of something like a free-swinging Shane Victorino, but since he has fallen well short of that standard more often than not, you wouldn't want to invest more than a late-round pick in him.
