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.


For Jason's scouting updates of speedy outfielder Peter Bourjos and rookie pitchers Danny Duffy and Zach Britton, you must be an ESPN Insider.
