Cardinals' Peter Bourjos earns second hit of spring Thursday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cardinals outfielder Peter Bourjos picked up just his second hit of the spring Thursday, going 1 for 2 with a solo home run in his team's 7-2 loss to the Mets.

"I think any result right now [is positive]," Bourjos said after the game, per MLB.com. "My swing feels good in the cage. It feels good in batting practice. It feels good in the game. A lot of it has been timing and trusting it. Coming into today I felt like I was in between my old swing and where I'm trying to go. And I really want to make an effort of sticking with where I want to go even though the results haven't been there. Because at the end of the day, I'm going to be a much better player, a much better hitter and have much more success if I continue to work in that progression instead of going back to what I feel comfortable with."

Bourjos also executed a sacrifice bunt and flied out to the warning track Thursday. He's 2 for 25 with one home run and one stolen base this spring.

Cardinals' Peter Bourjos still working out the kinks of new swing
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Cardinals outfielder Peter Bourjos came into spring training working on a new swing. So far, it hasn't worked out as planned and manager Mike Matheny is starting to see the frustration build from Bourjos, reports MLB.com.

"There are some things he was doing well, and now I'm starting to see him tense up, trying to make things happen instead of trusting what he's doing," Matheny said afterward. "That's what is frustrating -- when you see a kid who made the right changes that he needed to. This game is hard, and there are going to be times when you're doing the right thing mechanically and the hits don't come. But you want to see some positive reinforcement when you're doing something you think is right. He's just frustrated now. He wants to see results."

Matheny thinks it's just one of those things Bourjos will figure out with time.

"I still know that what we're watching now is better than what we were watching a year ago mechanically, with how he's able to get through the ball," Matheny said. "Even things just as simple as BP are very good indicators of what he physically can and cannot do. He can get through the ball now. That is so big to be able to fight one of the things that he struggled the most with, which is getting on that ball that is breaking away from him so much. I still feel that he's going to be fine."

Cardinals' Jon Jay 'not far behind,' Bourjos has 'a different swing'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny indicated Sunday that outfielder Peter Bourjos (hip) should be ready for the start of the exhibition season and has shown a noticeable difference in his swing, while outfielder Jon Jay (wrist) is "not far behind," the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

"It’s looking like Peter is moving that direction (of being ready)," Matheny said. "Jon is going to be close. He’s getting stronger and everything is measuring out pretty well. Not far behind. He pushed it a little further."

Bourjos has had trouble keeping his hip flexible the last few seasons after having surgery to remove an impingement in the hip.

“I think right now I feel like I’m in a better position to hit more pitches," Bourjos said. "In the fast few years, I’ve been trying to work around my hip. I didn’t really know it, but I didn’t have that same range of motion."

"It’s very noticeable what he’s worked on," Matheny said of Bourjos. "We can’t get inside his body to know what it feels like, but it’s a different swing for sure. He always has moved well. He moved well last year. He’s driving balls that he couldn’t necessarily drive before."

Jay, who is working his way back from wrist surgery, is continuing to target being ready for opening night April 5. He noted that he'll be able to receive his full complement of spring-training at-bats in the last two weeks of the preseason, if necessary.

"We’re working to where I get 100 percent comfortable and then go from there," Jay said.. "I’m a cage guy. Once I feel good about my swing in the cage, I can take it anywhere. I want to get right inside."

Cardinals' Peter Bourjos feeling great after hip surgery
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cardinals outfielder Peter Bourjos is feeling great after hip surgery, according to MLB.com.

Bourjos had surgery in October, but said he feels good heading into camp. Bourjos, who has been cleared to run since January, said things felt weird initially. "The first day I ran, it was weird. My hip felt loose," Bourjos said. Things have improved since then. "Now that I have range of motion, I realize how restricted I was," he explained. "I didn't know any better, because I had never had it."

Bourjos explained that he's had the pain for some time now, but waited on the surgery because he didn't know how it would impact his career. Things got so bad last season, though, that he felt he had no choice. Bourjos said he would wake up in the middle of the night "feeling like somebody was stabbing me right in the joint." Though Bourjos feels healthy, the club may opt to limit him initially during camp.

Bourjos, 27, hit .231/.294/.348 over 264 at-bats last year.
