LF,CF - FA
Peter Bourjos was released by the Angels on Friday according to the teams Twitter account.
Bourjos was designated for assignment earlier in the week so this was not a surprise. The veteran outfielder was hitting just .091 with 15 strikeouts in 46 plate appearances. Bourjos may catch on with another team for depth but will not be worth owning in fantasy.
Peter Bourjos finished 2-for-4 with a home run, a stolen base and two runs scored in a win over the White Sox on Thursday.
Bourjos just came off the disabled list and enjoyed a big night at the plate. Unfortunately, he is not worth owning in fantasy with his .217 average and only plays part time. He may get some extra at-bats for the next few games due to Kevin Kiermaier hurting his hip and may be a good cheap option in DFS.
Peter Bourjos went 1-for-2 against the Yankees on Wednesday, getting his first hit of the 2017 season in the process.
Bourjos has played in five of Tampa Bay's games this season, picking up just seven ABs. There's no value to be gleaned here, there are much better options on waivers.
According to Marc Topkin, the Rays have acquired outfielder Peter Bourjos from the White Sox for a player to be named later or cash.
The last time Peter Bourjos was productive was 2011 when he hit .271 with 12 home runs, 43 RBI and 22 stolen bases. Since then he has not been good. View this as a depth move.
