Bourjos will return to the active lineup when he's eligible on Saturday and will be in Saturday's starting lineup. While most expected hyped rookie Mike Trout to go back to the minors when Bourjos came back from his strained right hamstring, Scioscia said the 19-year-old Trout will go back -- but not right away. "There is a probability of overlap," Scioscia told the Orange County Register.
Trout (right), considered by some as the top prospect in baseball, has started 10 games in Bourjos' absence, including Friday night's game in Baltimore. Coming into Friday's game, Trout was hitting .133/.212/.167 with four hits in 30 at-bats. Scioscia said he thinks his short stint in the majors will be a good learning experience for the talented outfielder.
"I think any young player that comes up -- it's an eye-opener to face major-league pitching and major-league talent," Scioscia said. "I don't think it's going to so much crush your confidence as it's going to give you a baseline of where you need to get to in order to succeed at this level."
Bourjos, 24, is hitting .272/.323/.397 this season with 11 stolen bases and three home runs.For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
