by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2014) Cardinals outfielder Peter Bourjos was ejected from Friday's game against the Braves, along with manager Mike Matheny, for arguing with home plate umpire Sean Barber.

The duo was tossed from the game in the fourth inning after arguing balls and strikes following a Bourjos strikeout. It was the first ejection for both this season.  


Peter Bourjos hits first homer in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2014) The Cardinals received a rare boost from outfielder Peter Bourjos Wednesday, as he slugged his first home run in a 7-1 win over the Braves.

Bourjos put together his second multi-hit effort in a row, going 3 for 4 in the game. He slugged a solo home run in the second inning and added an RBI single in the fifth, to finish with two runs driven in.

Bourjos is still hitting just .217/.288/.350 in his first 60 at-bats with the team, while striking out 20 times. 


Peter Bourjos losing playing time


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/2/2014) Cardinals outfielder Peter Bourjos continues to lose playing time.

Bourjos has started just once over the last eight games. He's had a tough time getting things going, hitting just .160 in 50 at-bats. Bourjos has been replaced in center by Jon Jay.


Peter Bourjos getting time off to find his swing


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2014) Cardinals outfielder Peter Bourjos was out of the lineup for the third time in four games  Tuesday against the Mets, as manager Mike Matheny continues to look for a way to spark the offense. Jon Jay replaced Bourjos at center field Tuesday, though Matheny isn't giving up on the punch-less Bourjos.

"I'm trying to get the guys in there that are taking good at-bats," Matheny said. "Peter Bourjos is going to get opportunities. Right now, we've got to get something going."

Bourjos is hitting just .190 with a .261 on-base percentage this season, while spending much of the season batting eighth in the lineup. Still, Matheny believes his approach should lead to good things before long.

"I'm just trying to find his swing, like about half our lineup," Matheny said. "He's got the right approach. He's trying to stay through the ball. He's just finding himself in deep counts and trying to hit tough pitches. It doesn't usually work out for anybody."


Peter Bourjos moved to second in the order


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2014) Cardinals outfielder Peter Bourjos has been moved to the second spot in the batting order Monday. 

Bourjos is hitless in 13 at-bats to begin the season, which is why it's surprising he'll bat so high in the team's lineup. He'll have a tough task, as Reds left Tony Cingrani is on the mound. Bourjos has drawn a walk this season.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2014) Cardinals outfielder Peter Bourjos is not in the team's starting lineup Thursday against the Reds.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2014) Cardinals outfielder Peter Bourjos continues to keep his goal set on stealing 40 bases in 2014, per the Belleville News-Democrat. Bourjos believes hitting .280 will help him reach his goal of 40 stolen bases.

Peter Bourjos dealing with leg tightness


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2014) Cardinals outfielder Peter Bourjos, who hasn't played since Sunday, is dealing with leg tightness, MLB.com reports.

Bourjos is 2 for 5 with one double and one RBI in two games this spring. He's projected to start in center field for the Cardinals this season.


Cardinals will not try to change Peter Bourjos


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/16/2014) 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."


Peter Bourjos wants to surpass 40 stolen bases


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2014) Cardinals outfielder Peter Bourjos said if he gets regular at-bats, then he would like for his stolen-base total to be "in the 40s," according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. He's never had more than 22 stolen bases in the majors, but he did total 50 stolen bases at high Class A in 2008.

The Cardinals' front office acquired Bourjos from the Angels this offseason with the intent of him being the primary center fielder. However, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny expects Jon Jay to push Bourjos for the starting job this spring.


Cardinals, Peter Bourjos agree to one-year deal


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/17/2014) The Cardinals and outfielder Peter Bourjos have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year deal worth $1.2 million.

It's Bourjos' first year of arbitration eligibility, and he's primed to play his first season in St. Louis after being traded by the Angels in November. He hit .274/.333/.377 with three home runs, 12 RBI and six stolen bases in 175 at-bats last season.


Cardinals heading to arbitration with three


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2013) The Cardinals tendered contracts to outfielders Peter Bourjos and Jon Jay, as well as infielder Daniel Descalso Monday, ahead of the midnight deadline. All three will head to arbitration, though the team can negotiate contracts with them until Jan. 17. 

Cardinals acquire Peter Bourjos


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/22/2013) The Cardinals and Angels have agreed to swap outfielder Peter Bourjos and third baseman David Freese. Randal Grichuk will accompany Bourjos to St. Louis, while Fernando Salas will head to the Angels. 

Bourjos, who will turn 27 in March, hit .274 over 55 games in 2013. He missed most of the season with a hamstring strain (suffered in April) and a broken wrist (which ended his season in early September). Bourjos also missed a chunk of 2012 with a wrist injury and hip issues, while essentially opening the door for the call-up of Mike Trout. He has been the center of trade rumors since the middle of 2012.  

In 2011, Bourjos hit .271 and stole 22 bases over 502 at-bats. His role is unclear in St. Louis, as the Cardinals appear to have four players already rostered who can play the outfield. He is considered a plus defender and could usurp Jon Jay as the team's starting center fielder.


Divide on David Freese-Peter Bourjos deal


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/21/2013) Though the Angels appear to be in talks with the Cardinals about acquiring third baseman David Freese, the Orange County Register reports that the Cardinals won't trade Freese straight-up for Peter Bourjos.

The Cardinals do have interest in Freese, but they're also targeting shortstop Erick Aybar.


Cardinals have interest in Peter Bourjos


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/21/2013) According to the Orange County Register, the Cardinals' interest in Angels outfielder Peter Bourjos could be what makes a deal for third baseman David Freese possible. FOXSports.com reported earlier Thursday that the Angels and Cardinals have discussed a deal involving Freese.

Bourjos was limited to only 55 games in 2013 because of hamstring and wrist injuries. He hit .274 with three homers and six steals in 175 at-bats.


Phillies interested in Peter Bourjos


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(11/18/2013) Even having signed free agent Marlon Byrd, the Phillies are still looking at adding outfielders, and according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, the team is considering a trade for the Angels' Peter Bourjos. The Angels are reportedly looking for inexpensive starting pitching in return.

Bourjos played only 55 games in an injury-shortened season, and in that time, he hit .274 with six stolen bases.


Angels reinstate three off disabled list


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(11/4/2013) The Angels have reinstated three players from the 60-day disabled list Monday. Relievers Kevin Jepsen and Sean Burnett and Peter Bourjos have all joined the 40-man roster. 

Burnett made 13 appearances and had a 0.93 ERA before undergoing surgery to repair a tear in his left flexor tendon. He'll be fine for spring training. 

Jepsen, 29, missed the final five weeks of the year after undergoing an appendectomy. He appeared in 45 games and had a 4.50 ERA. He'll be fine for the spring. 

Bourjos, 26, hit .274 with three home runs, 12 RBI and six steals over 175 at-bats. He underwent season-ending surgery on his right wrist and will be ready to go by the spring. 


Peter Bourjos a candidate to be traded


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2013) Angels outfielder Peter Bourjos is a candidate to be dealt for pitching in the offseason, according to ESPN.

The Angels are in need of starting pitching, and already have Mike Trout, Josh Hamilton and a combination of Bourjos and Mark Trumbo in the outfield. Bourjos and Trumbo are both said to be available. Bourjos hit .274/.333/.377 in 175 at-bats.
