Bourjos will likely get another chance at a starting job with the Phillies. In his only full season with the Angels, he hit .271 with 220 totals bases. The Angels also thought he was a better defensive center fielder than Mike Trout.
General Manager Matt Klentak is obviously very familiar with Bourjos, and thinks he can help the Phillies. We shall see.
