Bourjos has accepted a job to become an advance scout for the Rockies, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.
Bourjos has decided to transition to a scouting role after appearing in just 26 games with the Angels in 2019. Across parts of 10 big-league seasons (875 games), Bourjos compiled a career .237/.293/.376 slash line with 43 home runs and 68 stolen bases.
Bourjos was released by the Angels on Friday.
Bourjos was designated for assignment earlier in the week after slashing .091/.109/.114 with 15 strikeouts in 46 plate appearances. The veteran outfielder remains a plus defender, but continues to struggle against major-league pitching.
Bourjos was designated for assignment by the Angels on Tuesday.
Bourjos did very little with his opportunities at the plate this season, hitting .091/.109/.114. The 32-year-old still plays good defense, but his weak bat means he may be close to running out of big-league opportunities. Shohei Ohtani (elbow) will return from the injured list to take his place on the roster.
Bourjos is not in the lineup Friday against Texas, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Bourjos has lost playing to Brian Goodwin so far this season, who will man left field and bat eighth Friday night. Even with a lefty on the hill for the opposition, the Angels will elect to roll with the left-handed hitting Goodwin.
Bourjos is not in the lineup Thursday against the Rangers.
Bourjos is hitless through his first 11 at-bats, so he'll hit the bench Thursday to clear his head while Brian Goodwin picks up a start in left field in his place.
Bourjos is out of the lineup Monday against Seattle.
Bourjos will get the day off after going 0-for-8 in the first three games of the 2019 season. Brian Goodwin gets the call in left field and is batting eighth in Bourjos' place.
The Angels selected Bourjos' contract Tuesday and added him to their active roster.
With Justin Upton (turf toe) headed to the injured list to begin the season, Bourjos will break camp with the Angels as the team's primary option in left field. The soon-to-be 32-year-old first broke into the big leagues with the Angels in 2010 and has a 22-steal season on his resume, but he's mainly a defensive specialist at this stage of his career. Expect him to bat near the bottom of the order before transitioning to a reserve role once Upton is healthy.
Bourjos went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, two runs and two RBI in Saturday's spring win over the Reds.
Bourjos is now 5-for-14 with two doubles and two home runs through five spring training games. The veteran speedster is doing all he can make his way onto the Angels' Opening Day roster as a non-roster invitee.
Bourjos went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and two RBI in Tuesday's spring win over the Athletics.
Bourjos has started spring training well as he is 5-for-8 with four RBI through three games. The veteran outfielder should be battling with Michael Hermosillo (groin) for a reserve outfield spot in spring training.
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.
The Braves selected the contract of Bourjos from Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.
Bourjos had a brief stint (3-for-27 over 18 games) with Atlanta earlier this season before being designated for assignment and subsequently released at the end of April. The veteran outfielder re-signed on a minor-league deal a few days later and should once again serve as outfield depth for the Braves.
Bourjos signed a minor-league contract with the Braves on Tuesday, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Bourjos was released by the Braves on Sunday, but will return to the club on a minor-league deal. He figures to provide organizational depth for the club. Bourjos went 3-for-27 (.120) over 18 games with Atlanta prior to being released.
Bourjos was released Sunday by the Braves after being designated for assignment Wednesday.
Bourjos was designated for assignment and replaced by Ronald Acuna on Wednesday. He will look for a fresh start after recording three hits in 25 at-bats through 18 games for the Braves.
Bourjos was designated for assignment by the Braves on Wednesday.
In a corresponding move, the club officially recalled top prospect Ronald Acuna from Triple-A Gwinnett prior to Wednesday's game in Cincinnati. Over 18 appearances with the Braves this year, Bourjos was just 3-for-25 with one extra-base hit and two RBI and failed to earn regular playing time in the outfield. He will report to Gwinnett unless claimed off waivers by another organization in the coming days.
Bourjos is expected to platoon with Preston Tucker in left field to open the season, Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan reports.
Tucker will serve as the team's primary left fielder until prospect Ronald Acuna is called up to the big club, with Bourjos seeing starts primarily against left-handed pitchers. He isn't expected to see enough playing time to be worth rostering.
Bourjos (calf) signed a major-league contract with the Braves on Sunday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Bourjos was cut loose by the Cubs on Friday after suffering a left calf cramp, although he has already passed his physical for the Braves. The 30-year-old should be okay for Opening Day and is likely to serve as a depth outfielder for Atlanta. He posted a .223/.272/.383 slash line with five home runs in 203 plate appearances with Tampa Bay last season.
