Mike Trout likely to stick when Peter Bourjos is activated

At least for a little while longer.

Peter Bourjos got through his workout fine Friday and will come off the DL on Saturday after missing 15 days with a strained right hamstring, the Orange County Register reports.  Angels manager Mike Scioscia already said he’ll start in center field tomorrow.

Still, the plan is for Mike Trout to hang around for now.  “There is a probability of overlap,” Scioscia said Friday.  While Trout is just 4-for-30 since his callup, the Angels will want to make sure Bourjos is healthy before they send their phenom back down.

In the meantime, Trout will make his 10th big-league start tonight, batting eighth against the Orioles’ Alfredo Simon.  While he’s struggled offensively, with just one extra-base hit and eight strikeouts in nine games, the Angels are 6-3 with him in the lineup.
