Angels’ Bourjos Breaks Wrist After Being Hit By Pitch

   HOUSTON (AP) — Los Angeles Angels outfielder Peter Bourjos has a broken right wrist, an injury sustained when he was hit by a pitch from Houston’s Jordan Lyles on Saturday.

The Angels said Sunday that Bourjos is likely to be placed on the 15-day disabled list before Tuesday’s series opener  against St. Louis.

It will be the second stint on the disabled list this season for Bourjos. He missed 38 games with a left hamstring strain before he was activated June 10.

Saturday was his first start since injuring his left thumb the previous weekend.

Bourjos lamented his recent bad luck, saying: “It’s been one thing after another.”
