Peter Bourjos enjoyed a nice day at the plate Monday against the Marlins by going 3-for-4 with an RBI, two runs, and a stolen base.

Bourjos tripled and scored in a three-run fifth inning before delivering an RBI single in the seventh. This was just his second multi-hit game since returning from the disabled list last month. The speedy outfielder is batting just .255/.298/.391 over 111 games this season. He doesn’t do enough to warrant attention in most fantasy leagues and the Phillies would be better-served looking at younger players for the final month.
Sep 5 - 4:32 PM

Phillies activated OF Peter Bourjos from the 15-day disabled list.

Bourjos missed the last two and a half weeks with a sprained right shoulder. He was playing right field prior to the injury but could see most of his time in left now with Aaron Altherr established in right.
Aug 12 - 3:11 PM

Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said on Monday that Peter Bourjos (shoulder) will "most likely" be activated from the disabled list Friday.

Bourjos, out since July 26 with a right shoulder sprain, has played a pair of minor league rehab games with Triple-A Lehigh Valley. The 29-year-old was batting .253/.290/.384 over 93 games prior to the injury. He's likely to have a diminished role down the stretch now that Aaron Altherr is back and some top prospects could be called up in September.
Aug 9 - 2:00 PM

Peter Bourjos will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Saturday.

Bourjos has been sidelined since late July with a sprained right shoulder. He's on track to return to the Phillies outfield in mid-August.
Aug 6 - 1:12 PM

Phillies placed OF Peter Bourjos on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder sprain.

That will obviously kill off any trade value he might have had. Bourjos suffered the injury on Tuesday night while robbing Ichiro Suzuki of a base hit and could be sidelined until September. Aaron Altherr has been activated in a corresponding roster move.
Jul 28 - 2:15 PM

Peter Bourjos (shoulder) said he expects to miss a couple of games.

Bourjos banged his right shoulder on the outfield fence Tuesday while robbing Ichiro Suzuki of a base hit in the first inning. "I jammed it pretty good," he told reporters late Tuesday night. This could obviously damage the 29-year-old's trade value with the August 1 deadline fast approaching.
Jul 26 - 10:49 PM

Peter Bourjos was pulled from Tuesday's game against the Marlins with a shoulder injury.

Bourjos slammed into the right field fence in the first inning while robbing Ichiro Suzuki of a hit and Jimmy Paredes entered to play right field in the second inning. There's probably a reevaluation of Bourjos' status coming Wednesday morning. Bad timing for the trade candidate.
Jul 26 - 7:40 PM

Peter Bourjos went 1-for-4 with an RBI triple and a run scored in Friday’s loss to the Mets.

Bourjos finished the first half strong and his second half is already off to a nice start. He’s hitting an even .400 with three homers, three triples, five doubles, and 15 runs scored over his last 19 games and recently claimed the No. 2 spot in the order. Those in shallow mixed fantasy leagues have better options, but he could be an option in deeper formats.
Jul 15 - 10:37 PM

Peter Bourjos went 3-for-5 and scored twice against the Diamondbacks on Monday.

One of the Phillies' corner outfielders finally got hot, and Bourjos has assumed the second spot in the order as a result of his recent success. That doesn't make him a strong pickup in shallow mixed leagues, but he might eke out some value in deeper leagues.
Jun 28 - 1:08 AM

Peter Bourjos went 0-for-2 before being lifted for a pinch-hitter Thursday against the Cardinals.

Bourjos is hitting .165 with a horrid 24/2 K/BB ratio in 79 at-bats, and no amount of defense is making up for that, particularly since the Phillies aren't even using him in center. It's not a huge upgrade, but he should play behind David Lough going forward.
May 5 - 4:35 PM

Peter Bourjos went 1-for-4 with a triple in Sunday's loss to the Brewers.

Bourjos hit his three-bagger off reliever Michael Blazek in the seventh inning. It was his first triple of the season. Bourjos was hitting ninth in Sunday's contest and is slashing just .196/.212/.333 over 51 at-bats. There is no fantasy upside here.
Apr 24 - 5:30 PM

Peter Bourjos went 2-for-5 with a pair of RBI, including a walk-off infield single to beat the Mets in extra innings on Wednesday.

Bourjos scalded a chopper up the third-base line in the 11th inning. David Wright made a nice play to get to it, but couldn't put enough on the throw to nab the speedster, resulting in a walk-off infield single for the Phillies. Although it's been a brutal start to the season for Bourjos -- he's hitting .191/.208/.298 -- speed never takes a day off, and it ultimately helped secure a win on Wednesday.
Apr 20 - 11:56 PM

Peter Bourjos doubled twice in three at-bats against the Orioles on Wednesday.

Bourjos is close to a lock to start for the Phillies following Aaron Altherr's injury, but as much as he's struck out in his two years in the NL, it doesn't seem likely that he'll be anything close to an average regular, particularly not while playing a corner. He should have some NL-only value while starting, but we're not looking at him as much of a sleeper.
Mar 9 - 4:06 PM

Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said Friday that Peter Bourjos will see time in left and right field while Odubel Herrera will remain the club's starting center fielder.

Aaron Altherr is expected to man the other corner spot for the Phillies. Bourjos is known as an incredibly skilled defender and is more than capable of manning center field, but Mackanin wants to keep Herrera in his familiar position where he had much success in 2015.
