RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Bourjos got off to a slow start last year after a strong 2011 campaign, and never really fit into the picture once Mark Trumbo, Mike Trout and Torii Hunter established themselves as the starting outfielders in Anaheim. Now Hunter is out of the picture and Bourjos is set to take over as the Angels' starting center fielder despite persistent trade rumors. He profiles as an elite defender thanks to his fantastic speed, but hasn't had a ton of success stealing bases at the big league level despite swiping 141 bags in 472 minor league games. Look for him to improve upon that skill if he gets consistent playing time, which could make him a useful fantasy option if he can match his offensive output from 2011.

2012

Bourjos established himself as the Angels' regular center fielder in 2011. While he struck out 124 times and posted a .327 OBP, 49 of his 136 hits went for extra bases, including 11 triples and 12 home runs. Bourjos spent most of the last campaign batting in the bottom third of the order, and he'll likely open there in 2012. However, if he can improve his plate discipline and secure a spot near the top of the order, he could score a lot of runs batting in front of Albert Pujols.

2011

Bourjos' 6:40 BB:K ratio in 181-at-bats last season indicates he may need more time in the minors to work on his plate discipline, but it appears the Angels are ready to hand him the starting center field job in 2011. Though Bourjos struggled to get on base, he usually picked up a few bases at a time when he did, finishing with 16 extra-base hits (including six homers) and 10 steals. Bourjos is unlikely to maintain those rates throughout an entire season, but he could provide some surprising speed, and is certainly a guy those in AL-only leagues will want to get to know as a result.

2010

You have to take a lot of the air out of Angels' prospects stats, so Bourjos' mildly impressive lines are actually not indicative of a bright future. To his credit, he dramatically improved his walk rate, so there's some reason to hope he can be more than a fourth outfielder. The Angels need a leadoff hitter, and this is the best internal option for 2011.

2009

Bourjos' main asset is his speed. Bourjos stole 50 bases last season and was only caught 10 times, an above-average 83 percent success rate. Bourjos will only turn 21 next year but expect him to begin the season with Double-A Arkansas.
