The Los Angeles Angels are expecting to activate center fielder Peter Bourjos from the disabled list tomorrow and insert him back in their lineup as they start a three-game series against the Houston Astros, according to Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com. Bourjos has been out since the end of June with a fractured right wrist. He's been rehabbing with the Angels' Triple-A affiliate, going 5-for-26 with four extra-base hits during his brief stint in the minors. With Bourjos' return, Mike Trout will shift back over to primarily covering left field. While fill-in J.B. Shuck has done well during his time with the team, manager Mike Scioscia told reporters he doesn't view Bourjos as a platoon player. Shuck is expected to be used as the team's designated hitter, while Kole Calhoun and Collin Cowgill will either be optioned or become reserve players for Los Angeles. "We have some left-handed bats we definitely can match up with, but I don't think Peter is a platoon-type player," Scioscia said of Bourjos. "I mean, he was really playing well early. It's going to be nice to re-establish some depth." Prior to hitting the DL for the second time this season, Bourjos was off to a hot start for the Angels. Over 147 plate appearances, the 26-year-old hit .333/.392/.457 with eight extra-base hits. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
