A Few Interesting Tidbits

"It looks like Mike Trout's first taste of the major leagues will continue at least through this weekend. The incumbent center fielder, Peter Bourjos, took batting practice and shagged fly balls Thursday and said he no longer feels anything in the right hamstring he pulled last week, but manager Mike Scioscia is inclined to take it slow. In fact, it's possible Bourjos still could wind up on the disabled list, extending Trout's stay at least another week. Scioscia hopes Bourjos can play one of the game's in Saturday's doubleheader. "I don't know if Peter's going to show that he's healthy enough to just keep going," Scioscia said. It's also possible the two players could play in the same game at some point, since Vernon Wells still has some residual pain from jamming his foot into the first-base bag. * Reliever Fernando Rodney is scheduled to pitch in a Class A game in San Jose Saturday and will either re join the Angels afterward or make one more minor-league rehab outing. * Scioscia asked American League manager Ron Washington to limit the use of Jered Weaver in the All-Star game to one inning, which Washington complied with, pulling Weaver after a scoreless inning. Weaver pitches the first game of Saturday's doubleheader. Dan Haren starts the Angels' rotation, followed by Weaver, Ervin Santana, Joel Pineiro and rookie Tyler Chatwood Tuesday against first-place Texas." What I found the most interesting is that Saxon mentions we could see Trout and Bourjos in the outfield together this weekend.
