The latest J.B. Shuck MLB and fantasy baseball news

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Peter Bourjos (hamstring) tripled in his rehab start with Single-A Inland Empire Monday, June 3, and he's expected to come off the disabled list later this week. Bourjos will go back to starting in center field, pushing OF Mike Trout back to left field.
Fantasy Tip: J.B. Shuck will lose basically all of his minimal fantasy value when Bourjos returns. In deep mixed leagues, Bourjos can provide stolen-base seekers a nice weapon. Stash him now if that is your need.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim manager Mike Scioscia said OF Peter Bourjos (hamstring) will return to center field when he comes back, pushing OF Mike Trout back to left field. Bourjos hopes to begin a rehab assignment with Single-A Inland Empire Monday, June 3.
Fantasy Tip: With regular playing time, Bourjos can be a nice speed asset in mixed leagues, assuming he can pick up where he left off before landing on the disabled list. J.B. Shuck will return to a bench role and will be largely useless, except in AL-only leagues.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Peter Bourjos (hamstring) started jogging this week and has been taking early batting practice.
Fantasy Tip: J.B. Shuck still has some time to take advantage of his increased playing time for AL-only managers. Bourjos is ramping up his baseball activities and could be nearing a rehab assignment, though. Once Bourjos returns, Shuck will be mostly useless in fantasy leagues.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Peter Bourjos (hamstring) is expecting to be out another two to four weeks with a left hamstring strain.
Fantasy Tip: J.B. Shuck will continue to benefit from increased playing time in the outfield in Bourjos' absence. Albert Pujols (foot) continues to be hampered by plantar fasciitis, so Mark Trumbo may be asked to play more first base, opening up more starts for Shuck.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Peter Bourjos' (hamstring) injury is expected to keep him out of action until later this month, at least.
Fantasy Tip: Nothing seems to be going right for the Angels to start this year, and Bourjos' absence has been a big hit. He was hitting at a clip of .313 with a couple of home runs, and his production has been missed. J.B. Shuck should continue to benefit from increased outfield action, but he's best saved for AL-only rosters.
