Peter Bourjos shakes up Angels' outfield
In most leagues, fantasy owners don't care which of the three outfield spots a player mans, but there are practical reasons for Hunter, arguably the top defensive center fielder of the era, to move. Center field is more demanding than a corner outfield spot, and Hunter, now 35, has dealt with injury problems in the past. Plus, he has been slumping. He admitted to reporters stunned to see him playing right field this week for the first time since 1999 that it takes him longer to recover from games than it used to. Angels corner outfielders Juan Rivera and Bobby Abreu are defensive liabilities, which has led to the organization promoting speedy center fielder Peter Bourjos, and fantasy owners should be interested.
