Bourjos has agreed to a minor-league deal with Los Angeles, Jeff Fletcher of the Southern California News Group reports. Bourjos spent the first four seasons of his professional career with the Angels, and he'll return with the hope of becoming their fourth outfielder. He should have plenty of opportunities to win a roster spot in spring training but will start the year at Triple-A Salt Lake if he fails to do so.
Bourjos inked a minor-league contract with the Giants on Friday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Bourjos elected to become a free agent July 2 after the Braves designated him for assignment. He put together an uninspiring .205/.239/.365 batting line with one homer and four RBI through 36 games with Atlanta, and he's expected to report to Triple-A Sacramento after signing with San Francisco.
Bourjos chose to become a free agent Monday. Bourjos was designated for assignment Saturday, but instead of heading to Triple-A Gwinnett, he'll hit the open market in search of a new team. In 36 games for Atlanta in 2018, he hit .205 with one home run and four RBI.
Bourjos was designated for assignment Saturday. He managed just a .205/.239/.364 slash line in 47 plate appearances with the Braves this season. Assuming he passes through waivers, he should continue to serve as organizational depth at Triple-A Gwinnett.
Bourjos got the start in right field and hit ninth in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Blue Jays, going 1-for-3 with a solo home run. The veteran outfielder has been used sparingly by the Braves since being called back up to the majors at the end of May, but Bourjos capitalized on his first start since June 6 by smacking his first homer of the year. His .195/.233/.366 slash line on the season isn't going to earn him more frequent playing time, however.
