The Angels have called up 23-year old righty swinging CF Peter Bourjos from AAA. He was the Angels’ #2 prospect coming into this season according to Baseball America. Bourjos has already played in 2 games for the Angels and he is 2 for 7 (.286 avg, 571 OPS) with 1 run and 1 stolen base. The Angels are moving Torii Hunter to RF and Bobby Abreu to LF to make room for the kid. Bourjos played in 102 games in AAA-ball before his promotion and he was 130 of 414 (.314 avg, .861 OPS) with 85 runs scored, 12 triples, 13 homers, 52 RBIs and 27 stolen bases. Juan Rivera will be the big loser with Bourjos up as he will see his playing time diminish. Rivera has played in 90 games this season for the Angels and he is 81 of 311 (.260 avg, .741 OPS) with 46 runs scored, 12 homers, 40 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.
