|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(1/17/15) Cardinals outfielder Peter Bourjos has been cleared to start swinging a bat, reports MLB.com. Bourjos underwent hip surgery to repair an impingement in November.

Report: Cardinals OF Peter Bourjos has hip surgery
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(11/7/14) Cardinals outfielder Peter Bourjos has undergone hip surgery to repair an impingement, per MLB.com. He is expected to be fully recovered by spring training.
Bourjos has struggled since earning 502 at-bats with the Angels in 2011. He has not had more than 264 since and is coming off a season in which he managed a stat line of .231/.294/.338.
Jon Jay expected to be Cardinals' starting CF in 2015
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(10/21/14) Cardinals outfielder Jon Jay was bumped from the starting job in center field last spring when the team acquired Peter Bourjos in a trade from the Angels. However, as the season progressed, Jay worked his way back into being the regular center fielder and is on track to keep the job heading into 2015.
"Center field (for 2015) right now is Jon Jay’s, based on how he played," general manager John Mozeliak said at a news conference Monday, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "I think he played a much better center field than he did a year ago.
“Peter Bourjos is someone we have under control and certainly envision him being a part of this club. How we create more playing time for him is something we strategize over this offseason. But, clearly, Jay’s performance and how he played the second half frankly is altering how we look at him moving forward."
Mozeliak added Jay will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left wrist Wednesday. He is expected to need 6-8 weeks of recovery, but he will be ready for spring training.
Peter Bourjos manages first three-RBI in more than a year
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/11/14) Cardinals center fielder Peter Bourjos certainly made the most of his one plate appearance Sunday against Baltimore.
Bourjos took over as a defensive replacement but made his mark with the bat, slugging a three-run homer in the ninth inning to remove all doubt in an 8-3 victory. It marked his first three-RBI game since April 19, 2013.
|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.
