Angels Not Actively Shopping Peter Bourjos

Despite reports to the contrary, Angels General Manager Jerry Dipoto denies that the club is actively shopping centerfielder Peter Bourjos, according to Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times (via Twitter).  Yesterday, the Angels were said to have had preliminary discussions with the Nationals involving Bourjos.

"We are not actively shopping him or looking for a fit for him. We believe he's an asset for us," Dipoto said.

The Royals, Diamondbacks, and Blue Jays also reportedly checked in on the outfielder's availability.  However, MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez said earlier today that there's no more truth to the Bourjos-Nationals rumors now than there was this offseason.  The Nats were actively searching for a solution in center field this winter and had the 25-year-old high on their wish list.

The Angels are in need of bullpen support and Washington would be a solid trade partner if it weren't for the injuries suffered by Drew Storen and Brad Lidge
