      Phillies' Peter Bourjos: Will compete for a starting job this spring

      GM Matt Klentak said Bourjos will be in the mix for a starting outfield job this spring, CSN Philadelphia reports. Bourjos, who is considered an elite defender, will battle with Odubel Herrera for playing time in center field. The Phillies could end up with both players in their starting lineup by shifting one of the two to left field which would push Code Ashe to the bench.

      Phillies' Peter Bourjos: Avoids arbitration with Phillies

      Bourjos signed a one-year contract with the Phillies on Wednesday, avoiding arbitration. Hours after being claimed off waivers from St. Louis, Bourjos signed on the dotted line with his new club, avoiding a date with an arbiter. Heralded mostly for his outfield defense, Bourjos owns just a .241/.302/.380 career batting line at the major league level, with his high point coming in 2011 when he hit .271 with 12 homers and 22 steals.

      Phillies' Peter Bourjos: Claimed off waivers

      Bourjos was claimed off waivers by the Phillies on Wednesday, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports. Bourjos spent last season with the Cardinals, appearing in 117 games and hitting .200/.290/.333 in 195 at-bats. The speedy, 28-year-old will add outfield depth for Philadelphia, likely in a similar role to the one he held last season in St. Louis.

      Cardinals' Peter Bourjos gets kicked in the face at the plate Friday

      Cardinals outfielder Peter Bourjos scored the game-winning run in the 3-2 win over the Cubs, though it was a painful run. Bourjos was the lead runner with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 10th. With the Cubs playing a five-man infield, Jhonny Peralta rolled a grounder passed the mound. The throw went to the plate, but it was offline. Bourjos raced home and was safe at the plate, but he was kicked by catcher David Ross on the play. Bourjos went through procedures to test for a concussion, but he seems to have been fine, according to MLB.com. Still, it is not clear if Bourjos will be able to play on Saturday.

      Cardinals' Bourjos slips to fifth on OF depth chart with return of Jay

      With the return of Jon Jay from the disabled list, Cardinals outfielder Peter Bourjos has slipped to fifth on the outfield depth chart. Matt Holliday has his spot in left field solidified, so that leaves manager Mike Matheny with the struggle to find playing time in center and right field for Jay, Jason Heyward, Randal Grichuk and Bourjos. "I could see this coming," Bourjos said, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "If Jay and Grich hadn't been hurt, I'd probably have 25 at-bats right now. "I knew my role was going to be limited and it was nice to get those opportunities and take advantage of them. But all the guys are healthy now, so you kind of fall back into that same role."

      Cardinals CF Peter Bourjos gets a breather on Tuesday

      After starting four straight games, Cardinals center fielder Peter Bourjos is being held out of the lineup on Tuesday against the Diamondbacks. Bourjos has seen the majority of the playing time in center field ever since Jon Jay went on the disabled list in the middle of May. But Bourjos has struggled at the plate, hitting an even .200 (7 for 35) in the 12 games since Jay went down. So, Randal Grichuk will get the start in center and bat eighth on Tuesday.
