Peter Bourjos: Slated To Start In CF Next Season Staff

Update: GM Jerry Dipoto said Friday that Bourjos will start in center field next season, the LA Times reports.

Recommendation: Bourjos only saw 168 at-bats in a crowded Angels outfield last season, but the Angels envision him playing a prominent role again in 2013 due to Torii Hunter's likely departure. Bourjos posted just a .606 OPS during a rough 2012 campaign; however, he hit 12 home runs and stole 22 bases the year before. As long as he holds onto his starting job, Bourjos will be worth considering in the later rounds of next season's drafts.
