Before the season, the Nationals focused on acquiring a starting center fielder. Some talks centered around Los Angeles Angels outfielder Peter Bourjos.
With injuries to the Nationals outfielders, especially to starting right fielder Jayson Werth, this FOXSports.com report indicates those talks may be heating up.
The 25-year old Bourjos has seen his playing time dwindle ever since the Angels called up prospect Mike Trout. Bourjos is batting .192 through 21 games this season, but hit .271 with 26 doubles, 11 triples, 22 stolen bases, 12 homers and 43 RBIs in 147 games in 2011.
