Latest Update Peter Bourjous went 2-for-4 with a triple, two RBI and a run scored in the Cardinals win over the Brewers on Sunday. Sun Sep, 07, 05:32 PM
Has tremendous speed, which he uses effectively both in covering ground in center field and on offense. Displays streaky power and run production.
Flaws: : Lacks consistent power and on-base skills. Needs to continue to work on making more contact, since he strikes out a bit too much for a speed guy.
Bourjos has been providing solid production when receiving playing time in September, going 7-for-15 with with a double two RBI and three runs scored this month. However, he is still a far cry from a must-start when in the Cardinals starting lineup, sitting on only eight stolen bases, which is supposed to be the one category he should be able to dominate.

Bourjos had the walk-off hit in their 1-0 win over the Pirates. He has 4 hits in his last two games, but still remains fantasy irrelevant, even in the deepest of leagues.Analyst: Colby Conway
Although Bourjos had a solid night at the plate for the Cardinals, the fact remains that he is not going to get enough at-bats to warrant fantasy consideration. Through 223 at-bats, the Cardinals outfielder is slashing .233/.298/.359 with four home runs and only eight stolen bases, so unless one of the starters goes down with an injury, he should remain on the outside looking in. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Bourjos had to be the most unlikely candidate to hit a home run let alone one off of Clayton Kershaw, who had not allowed a home run since May 28th. Add in that it was Bourjos first home run with a man on base since 2012. The speedy outfielder now has three home runs and eight stolen bases on the year (2 CS) as a part-time player in the Cardinals outfield, so unless he earns everyday playing time he is nothing more than a deep league NL-only option unless you get desperate a little later in the season for steals in your roto league(s).Analyst: Michael Pichan
