Bourjos (wrist) was acquired by the Cardinals from the Angels on Friday, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports.
Bourjos was limited to 55 games in 2013 due to a strained hamstring and a broken wrist. He is expected to be about ready to go by the start of the 2014 season. With Carlos Beltran expected to leave via free agency, Bourjos offers the Cardinals a solid defensive outfielder who could push Jon Jay to a corner spot in certain lineups. He also has experience hitting at the top of the order and can provide a solid on-base and base running presence for the Cardinals and allow them to place Matt Carpenter in a run-producing spot.
