Bourjos for Granderson? Angels Prospect Coveted Prior to Big Trade

Reports out of the Indianapolis Winter meetings indicate that the Angels biggest headway into trading for Curtis Granderson, the Tigers outfielder came when they added minor league prospect Peter Bourjos to the package. (Source is Fox Sports.)

The Angels are on the sidelines for now, though, as a three team deal for Granderson involving the Diamondbacks and Yankees (and including pitcher Max Scherzer) is gaining steam. But like Bill Stoneman learned about Casey Kotchman when he was offered many combinations of veterans for the young infielder at the 2005 Winter Meetings: Forget Baseball Prospectus, sometimes other clubs will tell you who your top prospect is.
