Updates on Peter Bourjos, Zach Britton 

August, 23, 2011
Earlier this season, I was scouting a Triple-A game when I bumped into another scout I know, Chris Bourjos of the Baltimore Orioles. Bourjos played in 13 big league games with the Giants before becoming a scout. He is also the father of Angels outfielder Peter Bourjos.

On this particular night, Chris' phone was buzzing because Peter had made a highlight grab in center field, one of his best catches of the season. I leaned over toward him and sheepishly told him, "I have to admit I was light on your son." By that, I meant that my overall scouting grade on Peter as a prospect when he was in the minors turned out to be too low.
