Peter Bourjos will start Thursday

Peter Bourjos will start in center field and bat leadoff for the Cardinals in their game versus Cleveland on Thursday, taking the place of Jon Jay, who was placed on the 15-day DL with left wrist tendonitis. (Source: St. Louis Cardinals on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Bourjos is batting .311 with four stolen bases so far this season and has performed well when called upon. It remains to be seen if the speedy veteran can sustain that kind of production, but he's worth a speculative add in deeper and daily leagues as he will likely remain in the starting lineup in the short term with both Jon Jay and Matt Holliday sidelined by injury, but Randal Grichuk also stands to gain starts when activated from the disabled list.

Peter Bourjos started in center field for the Cardinals on Saturday afternoon, going 2-for-4 with a run scored in an extra innings victory over the Pirates.

Fantasy Impact: Bourjos batted eighth while Jon Jay took Jason Heyward's place in right field and hit leadoff. Bourjos will get his spot starts, especially if he can keep getting on base and Heyward continues to struggle. The veteran speedster was caught stealing for the second time in as many games, this one a potentially costly baserunning mistake with the game on the line, but these should be considered outliers.

Peter Bourjos made a surprise start on Wednesday night, batting leadoff and going 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored from in a 5-2 victory over the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact: Bourjos made just his second start of the season but showed off his impressive speed, legging out a triple and beating a throw to the plate. He was also caught stealing once, but it's hard to complain about a performance that raised his season batting average by 114 points. If Bourjos could get regular playing time, especially at the top of the order, he would certainly warrant an add in fantasy leagues. The presence of Jon Jay limits his appeal at the moment.

Peter Bourjos pinch ran for Matt Holliday in the ninth inning of a 3-0 win over the Cubs on Opening Night and stole his first base of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Bourjos has always had speed, but his playing time will be a crucial factor in determining his fantasy value. He is currently vying for time in a crowded outfield and only useful for steals in very deep leagues.

Peter Bourjos went deep today in the late innings of the game against the Mets. The solo shot bumped his AVG to .080.

Fantasy Impact: Bourjos has been struggling mightily with his new batting stance. You can tell his been trying to prove himself to the Cardinals and may be forcing the issue. He has all the tools to be their starting CF but, he seems to be unable to put things together. The homer is nice but, he's far from the man who pushed Mike Trout to LF back when he was with the Angels.

Peter Bourjos still hitless

By Drew Bradley

On Monday, Cardinals CF, Peter Bourjos, went 0 for 3 with a pair of strikeouts. He has now batted 8 times this Spring and has yet to reach base and has struck out 3 times.

Fantasy Impact: Obviously, it is still way too early to jump to any conclusions, but Bourjos needs a solid spring to work his way into the outfield rotation and this isn't the start he was hoping for. In any case, there's no need to keep him on your draft radar.

St. Louis Cardinals CF, Peter Bourjos, has completely recovered from surgery on his hip in October that has been causing him discomfort since 2010. Last season, the pain became overwhelming and Bourjos decided to get the surgery at the end of the season. Now, fully healthy, and in his 2nd season in St. Louis, Bourjos hopes to rebound from a miserable offensive year. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: In 214 ABs last year, Bourjos slashed .234/.294/.348, which, it goes without saying, is just not very good. He was 9 for 12 on SB attempts and showcased outstanding defense, so it is possible, that he is able to emerge as the starting CF in St. Louis, if Jay were to struggle. However, unless he is able to dramatically improve with the bat this season, he could find himself without a role at the major league level (see Pete Kozma).
