    Cool David Freese & Fernando Salas to the Angels For Peter Bourjos & Randal Grichuk

    Prospects are also involved; will update the subject line of this thread when known.



    Cardinals Acquire Peter Bourjos
    By Steve Adams [November 22 at 1:33pm CST]
    1:33pm: Yahoo's Tim Brown tweets that while Bourjos and Freese are the primary players in the deal, a couple other pieces are involved as well.

    1:19pm: The Cardinals have acquired Peter Bourjos from the Angels, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (on Twitter). MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez reports that David Freese will head to the Angels in the deal. Other pieces could be involved in the deal, though that's not yet known at this time.

    Bourjos, who turns 27 at the end of Spring Training, is a defensive wizard in center field that owns a career .251/.306/.398 batting line. He slashed .274/.333/.377 in an injury-shortened season after being hit by a pitch on the wrist and requiring surgery. He also posted an impressive .271/.327/.438 batting line with 12 homers and 22 steals in 2011, showing off that he's capable of being a plus offensive player in a full season as well. The speedster has a career 20.2 UZR/150 rating in more than 2,600 innings in center field. MLBTR contributor Matt Swartz projected a $1.1MM salary for Bourjos in 2014.

    Freese, 30, had a down season at the plate in 2013, slashing .262/.340/.381 with just nine homers. He was significantly better in 2012, when he belted 20 homers and batted .293/.372/.467 in 144 games. Freese is typically regarded as a solid defender at third base, but both The Fielding Bible and Ultimate Zone Rating graded his work poorly this season. Freese began the season on the DL with a back strain, and if that pain lingered throughout the season, it could explain his decline on both sides of the game. Swartz projects Freese to earn $4.4MM in 2014.

    Wow. Randal Grichuk is included in the deal; headed to the Cards.

    The Angels chose him just before Mike Trout. Good power, had a better year than last.

    I've literally never heard of either one of the players coming to St. Louis.

    FWIW, I'd rank Grichuk in the 11-20 range within the Cards' system.

    Bourjos is no longer a prospect.

    Nice trade; Jay heading to someone in a future SS trade?

    I love this! Bourjos should be a legitimate lead off hitter, his speed and glove are great. Allows us to move carpenter to 3rd and gives us flexibility to trade Adams for a 3b. I really think there was a chance Freese and Salas were going to be non-tendered

    Yup; Bourjos lead-off and the doubles machine Carpentar batting #2 ; Carp moves to 3b making way for Wong.

    This also moves swaps a left handed bat for a righty!

    Will Grichuk ever be promoted to the Majors, perhaps Cardinals?

    Cant see it happening in StL; the current OF looks like Holliday LF, Bourjos CF, Taveras RF, Craig RF, Jay Platoon/Trade bait. Even if Craig or Adams are traded for a SS this off-season the road to the Show in StL looks steep.
