I have a hunch that Juan Rivera could get his starting job back soon for the Los Angeles Angels

31-year old righty swinging outfielder Juan Rivera lost his starting job when the Angels called up 23-year old top prospect Peter Bourjos. But, Bourjos has been overmatched in his first taste of the majors so far. He has played in 11 games for the Angels and he is 5 of 37 (.135 avg, .409 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 2 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. If Bourjos continues to struggle I have little doubt that the Angels will turn back to Rivera. Rivera has played in 96 games this year for the Angels and he is 86 of 334 (.257 avg, .729 OPS) with 48 runs scored, 12 homers, 43 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.
