In 85 games with the Phillies, Peter Bourjos has been the defensive Outfielder the Phillies have needed behind their young pitching: a 1.000% Fielding Percentage with Zero Errors and 14 Putouts.  But also he has produced at the plate with 4 Home Runs and 15 Doubles.

Phillies Assistant General Manager Scott Proefrock joined The Sports Bash on Tuesday and revealed why Bourjos may be a trade piece before the MLB Trade Deadline:

“Peter Bourjos has played very well and I know Peter may have turned himself into a viable trade candidate that can help a contender....Peter is a guy quite frankly who is a free agent next year, we bought him in to improve our outfield defense and he’s done that.   For him personally, his offense, after a rough start, has picked up to the point where, again, I think he’s got a chance to help a contender in the second half of the year."

Hear what Proefrock had to say about the development of Nick Williams and other top prospects along with his thoughts on Odubel Herrera and Tommy Joseph as part of the team's future
