The move causes a ripple in the bigger picture, too, because it means that Mike Trout will slide back over the the corner-outfield spot of left field -- despite his abilities in center field.
Bourjos missed 38 games with a left-hamstring strain and, in his absence, Trout excelled in center. Bourjos is hitting .313 over the span of 83 at-bats, however, and his excellent defense is his calling card -- good enough to displace even the defensive prowess of Mike Trout.
The Angels have been performing below expectations this season so Bourjos' speed and defense could give them the shot in the arm that they desperately need. At the very least, he should help out Josh Hamilton in regards to the amount of ground they have to cover as his range is one of his best assets.
