There have been many players linked to the Washington Nationals in the latest MLB trade rumors, but here's a new one: Peter Bourjos. The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim center fielder is apparently on the Nationals' radar, according to MLB.com's Bill Ladson.
Ladson reports that the Nationals have added Bourjos to a list that includes Denard Span of the Twins, Colby Rasmus of the Cardinals, B.J. Upton of the Rays and Michael Bourn of the Astros. Bourjos is a 24-year old outfielder in his first full season with the team. He's hitting .265 with three home runs, 17 RBIs, 11 stolen bases and a .315 on-base percentage.
For what it's worth, Nationals manager Davey Johnson told reporters that he doesn't anticipate any major trades.
