BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Given his glove—it can’t be said enough that he’s a generational talent in the outfield—how badly can Bourjos hit before he’s a worse option than Vernon Wells? As it turns out, worse than .220/.291/.315, which left him with 1.2 WARP to Wells’s 0.8. That’s not to say Bourjos’s season wasn’t an undercarriage-scraping speed bump, and his inability to lay off or hit low breaking balls sounds like many a washout’s sob story. But he did make some positive steps in his approach: He swung at fewer pitches outside the zone, and he made contact with more pitches inside it. He got two starts, and 15 plate appearances, in the last two months of the season, so it’s clear the glove alone won’t be enough for Mike Scioscia—no matter how generationally good it is.
2012 Bourjos covered so much ground as a center fielder that it sometimes backfired early in the season. His corner outfielders, unaccustomed to flanking a player with such range, sometimes weren't giving way to Bourjos, while other times they flinched or backed away at his mere approach. The turf war ended around June, when Torii Hunter and Vernon Wells learned what we all learned: When Peter Bourjos is chasing a ball, it's more fun to just watch. He's an elite defender, well deserving of the Gold Gloves passed down through the organization from Pettis to White to Edmonds to Erstad to Hunter. The questions entering the season were all about his hitting, and he addressed those. He reached base on around half his bunt attempts, boosted his slugging percentage by taking unthinkable extra bases, and hit nine of those 12 home runs in the final two months. He can run, and he can trot, so now he just needs to learn to walk.
2011 All the tools in the world might not put Bourjos’ bat back together; an anemic offensive performance like the one he mustered in the majors while serving as the Angels’ ninth-place hitter from August on could only be redeemed by a truly superlative showing on defense. Fortunately, Bourjos delivered on that side of the ball, racking up some of the highest runs saved totals detected by defensive metrics among all center fielders, despite starting only 49 games at the position. The size of the sample renders those numbers somewhat suspect, but fielding stats have always loved his work in the minors, and scouts see no reason to disagree. As long as Mike Scioscia doesn’t mistake the speedy Bourjos for a leadoff batter, as he did during the final week of 2010, the Angels can lug his lumber while crossing their fingers that his next positive WARP score won’t come at the cost of a negative VORP.
2010 A 10th-round 2005 pick out of Scottsdale, Bourjos is considered the system's best athlete, known for outstanding speed, a strong arm ,and excellent instincts—your basic leadoff-hitting center fielder in the making. The big knock on him coming into the year was a lack of patience; he walked in just 4.8 percent of his PAs in 2007 and 2008. He doubled his walk rate in 2009, and while improved pitch recognition played a part, a June wrist injury which required postseason surgery may have contributed as well. He hit .316/.368/.454 with a 7.1 percent walk rate prior to the injury, .253/.350/.398 with a 12.3 percent rate after. He'll start the year at Triple-A, but with Torii Hunter signed through 2012, and 2009 first-rounder Mike Trout now the system's best prospect, Bourjos' shot at a regular job may be in another organization altogether.
2009 Normally, the image suggested by a player who is the son of a scout is that of a fundamentally sound grinder. In Bourjos's case, however, it's all about the tools: he's a plus-plus runner who covers a ton of ground in center and led the California League in stolen bases, but he'll swing at anything. A leadoff man's skill set without the walks makes him a fourth outfielder, but at 22, Bourjos has time to figure out which kind of player he can be.
2008 After starting the year as a stealth prospect with a strong defensive reputation, Bourjos had his 2007 season cleaved by a ruptured left ring finger. The injury cost him two months of playing time and any chance of advancing past Low-A. The lost time hurts; while the tools are still there, he's now behind on the age/level matrix. Despite the PECOTA comp above, his long-term outlook is more fourth outfielder than Willy Taveras.
2007 Peter Bourjos is an athletic, toolsy center fielder picked up in the tenth round of the 2005 draft who just made his pro debut; he`ll need to show better hitting skills, but it`s still very early.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)Would you trade for Peter Bourjos in a NL-only league? Also is Craig's girl Spanish?
(D Rock from Atlanta)
That depends what I'm trading for him. He's certainly worth rostering, but I'm not going to make a huge push for him. And I've only seen a picture, but I think no. Unless you're referring to Mau, in which case def yes. (Ben Carsley)
2014-03-14 09:00:00 (link to chat)Are there any NL-only 4th OF'ers or equivalent that you really like? I'm thinking of someone along the lines of Allen Craig a few yearsa ago that flashed some promise but was in line to back up at the start of the season.
(mj1453 from chicago)
I like Drew Stubbs for the Colorado factor and because Corey Dickerson is no sure thing, Jon Jay as a sneaky value proposition behind the oft-injured Peter Bourjos, and Nate McLouth as a sneaky source of speed even as a backup. (Mike Gianella)
2013-10-30 12:00:00 (link to chat)Think that it's too "Rays-esque" if they kicked the tires on Peter Bourjos? Would love to see Jennings back at LF(Plus D there, looking at his DRS totals from '10-'12), Bourjos in CF & Myers in RF.
(jlarsen from Chicago)
Depends on how much the Angels want for him. He'd fit in well in Tampa, but he's a pretty good player so he'd actually fit in well in a lot of places. Having Bourjos (whose name I always want to spell Bourjous for symmetry's sake) in center would help a lot, especially with Myers in right. (Matthew Kory)
2013-07-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do the Angels shop Peter Bourjos at the deadline for pitching? I know he's hurt now, but would his injury be a deal-breaker as of now? If not, what could the Angels net in return?
(Brent from Laguna Beach)
They certainly could. How hurt would matter of course, but I believe Jake Peavy was dealt while injured. Bourjos would likely net a mint and rightfully so, but there isn't a ton on the market. (Paul Sporer)
2013-03-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Scoresheet keeper league round 21 or 22: Lorenzo Cain or Peter Bourjos?
(hotstatrat from Toronto)
Hey hotstatrat, I miss your city... best dim sum I've ever had (but I get to see Rush inducted into the Rock and Roll HOF next month, so I can't complain). Those are the tough rounds. In my combined league, both went in round 17, with Bourjos coming six picks after Cain. The former gives you sick defense, while the latter might have some untapped offensive upside. If this is AL-only, there's a remote chance that Cain becomes a keeper. I'd take him first. (Geoff Young)
2013-02-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is your favorite baseball player ever?
(Kris from Santa Barbara)
William Van Landingham, with nods to J.R. Phillips and Bill Mueller. Favorite active is Peter Bourjos. (Sam Miller)
2013-01-16 13:30:00 (link to chat)Can Peter Bourjos repeat his 2011 season, or will he end up on the bench, with Trout moving back to center and Kole Calhoun or (ugh) Vernon Wells in left?
(Mark68 from A Mile High)
I don't expect to see those kind of numbers out of Bourjos again. Even without that, I think he can still play everyday for a Major League team. Ultimately, I think he'll get pushed aside by Trout in center field, assuming they have reasonable options on the corners. (Mark Anderson)
2012-12-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Peter Bourjos for Nick Castellanos; who hangs up first?
(Tyson from Chicago)
I think it could be reasonably discussed, but ideally the Tigers would shift focus back to Porcello and look to play that angle. (Paul Sporer)
2012-09-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm going to rehash a question that I asked another BP writer this week. What player currently relegated to a bench role would perform at a star level if given a full time job or was traded and utilized correctly? So far, we've only gotten Brandon Belt and Peter Bourjos between the 2 of us.
(jlarsen from chicago)
Belt's been starting regularly for months now, so I think we can cross him off the list.

Not really sure about Bourjos either. He's clearly an above-average defender, but I'm not sure he's a "real" .270 hitter. If he is, then yeah, with his speed, he might crack star-level.

It's a good question, but no one else is really springing to mind for me. Let's crowdsource: you guys have any votes for guys who are currently playing in a bench role who deserve a starting spot? (Ian Miller)
2012-06-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Realistically, Sam, what do the Angels do with Vernon Wells come August? Is he relegated to 4th/5th/6th OF or do we finally sever the tie to the affable albatross?
(dannyras from CA)
If he weren't Vernon Wells, but were some Triple-A veteran, he'd be a little bit of a perfect fourth outfielder. He can play all three spots, he is actually pretty good defensively at a corner, he has power off the bench. I guess you'd rather he switch-hit and run a little bit, but he'd be not the worst fourth outfielder.

The problem is that you don't want a sulking veteran in the clubhouse, and Vernon probably won't respond to being benched like a Triple-A veteran. I guess he sticks around this year until they figure out whether Torii is coming back in some role after 2012, and until Peter Bourjos has either stuck or unstuck. (Sam Miller)
2012-06-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see Peter Bourjos stick for long as Angels? Or eventually go to Nationals and play CF for #Nattitude ?
(Chris from Bourjos household)
I don't think there was much to the Nationals connection ever. I think Hunter is going to probably play himself into a pretty good contract somewhere else, Wells won't bounce back at all, and the Angels will keep Bourjos for a Trout/Bourjos/Trumbo outfield. (Sam Miller)
2012-05-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think the Angels should do with Peter Bourjos? With Mike Trout up, he's slated to play once (maybe twice) a week, and is apparently not someone the Angels are interested in trading right now. Do you think being a 4th OF in Anaheim is any better for him (or the team) than sending him to SLC?
(riley b from a tour bus headed for San Diego)
I want to say that Vernon Wells will eventually be pushed aside, or platooned at DH with Morales, and Bourjos and Trout can play CF/LF together. But I also don't think Trumbo is super likely to stay at third, and so he'll start getting OF starts. It's not that I'm against trading Bourjos, it's just that I don't ever get the sense (from the rumors and stuff) that they would get anything close to full value for him. I mean, the Bourjos for John Lannan rumors in the offseason were nothing, they weren't tied to reality (I don't think), but the fact that people in the industry, writers, etc, though that it was even remotely realistic tells me that, yikes, it might be remotely realistic. And trading Peter Bourjos for anything close to John Lannan would be absolutely insane.

I guess I'd keep him up as a fourth outfielder for now. Playing time has a way of working itself out, especially on a team with as many struggling hitters/fielders as the Angels. (Sam Miller)
2011-11-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks Derek. What are the chances the Angels move Peter Bourjos to try and grab David Wright? It would leave a clear spot for Mike Trout in 2012 in the Angels' outfield.
(Keith from Manchester, CT)
It might make some sense on it's face, but I don't really see it happening. If the Mets don't bring back Reyes (and I don't think they should for what he'll likely go for), I think trading Wright makes a lot of sense. There's whispers that the team might wait until mid-season to do so, though, possibly so that he can rebuild his value a bit in a friendlier CitiField. There's no sure bet that the Angels would even go for that deal, though it seems quite likely they'll find a way to get Trout in their 2012 outfield. (Derek Carty)
2011-10-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Favorite tater time tracking moment of 2011?
(dianagramr from NYC)
Hmm, good question. There weren't as many jaw-dropping moments in 2011 as there were in 2010, but the two I remember the most are: Derek Jeter's 3000th hit, when I had to run out of the session at SABR 41 to get better wifi in the hall to track his tater trot, and Peter Bourjos' "four-base single". Technically, Bourjos didn't hit a home run, but his "single" was just as much of an inside-the-parker as anyone else's. The fact that it allowed us to see his speed was just fantastic. I never would have thought I would see a 14.0 second trot (14.02 to be exact). (Larry Granillo)
