Angels G.M. Jerry Dipoto: We have not offered Peter Bourjos to any other team

Los Angeles Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto reiterated on Wednesday that he is not trying to trade outfielder Peter Bourjos, who has been overtaken in center by rookie phenom Mike Trout.

“At no point have we called and offered Bourjos to anybody, for a reliever or a starter," Dipoto said, according to Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times.

The Angels are known to have interest in Philadelphia Phillies lefthander Cole Hamels, Milwaukee Brewers righthander Zack Greinke and Minnesota Twins lefthander Francisco Liriano, and Bourjos is one of their primary chips.

“Peter, right now, is a popular name, and rightfully so -- he’s a talented young player with some ceiling who is not getting regular playing time,” Dipoto said. “That tends to create a scent for the wolves.”

For that reason, Dipoto would not rule out trading Bourjos, but he insisted, "We have nothing significant or imminent at this time."
