The Angels placed Bourjos on the disabled list in late April with a hamstring injury. He suffered the ailment while attempting to leg out a sacrifice bunt during the Halos' marathon contest against the Oakland Athletics.
Bourjos' running routine -- which he resumed yesterday -- consists of jogging a third of the way on the warning track between foul poles, sprinting a third and then jogging the final third. While resuming running activities is a pivotal part of recovery from hamstring injuries, Gonzalez notes that Bourjos is still a couple weeks from returning.
Prior to hitting the DL, Bourjos was off to a nice start for the Angels. The 26-year-old was hitting .313/.370/.458 with two doubles, two triples and two home runs over 96 plate appearances. In his absence, Los Angeles has used Mike Trout in center with Mark Trumbo and Josh Hamilton manning the corner outfield positions.
