Peter Bourjos injury: Angels OF needs wrist surgery, out for season

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Bourjos originally injured his wrist on June 29.

Los Angeles Angels outfielder Peter Bourjos will undergo wrist surgery and miss the remainder of the season, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Bourjos originally suffered the injury on June 29 when he was hit by a pitch on the wrist against the Houston Astros. He spent around six weeks on the disabled list with the injury, then went 5-for-46 since his return on Aug. 16.

The outfielder discussed how the injury affected him with DiGiovanna:

"Checking a swing really bothered me, and I had a tough time staying on top of pitches. I didn't feel strong. If I have to load up on pills to get it to be manageble to where I can put a swing on the ball that is somewhat comfortable, that's not good."

Bourjos hit .274/.333/.377 in 196 plate appearances this season. He was batting .313 with a .370 on-base percentage before straining his hamstring on April 29.
