Bourjos and Trumbo Named to 2010 All-PCL Team
SALT LAKE CITY (September 1, 2010) - The Pacific Coast League announced today that center fielder Peter Bourjos, currently a member of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, and first baseman Mark Trumbo have been named to the 2010 All-PCL Team.
"We have enjoyed watching Peter and Mark hone their skills in Salt Lake City and are excited for their futures with the Angels," said Bees general manager Marc Amicone. "This is a tribute to their hard work and dedication, and an honor they both deserve."
Bourjos, 23, hit .314 (130-for-414) for the Bees this season, collecting 13 home runs, 13 doubles and 12 triples in 102 games played. He was successful in 27-of-32 stolen base attempts and scored 85 runs. Despite his early August call-up to the Angels, Bourjos remains the league's co-leader in triples and is one of three players with double digit totals in each of the three extra-base hit categories.
The 6-1, 180-pound right-handed hitter finished his first Triple-A season setting modern PCL records with 56 hits and 37 runs scored in July. Over the course of that record-setting month, Bourjos batted .438, tallied 92 total bases and generated an OPS (on-base plus slugging) of 1.193 in 28 games played. The 56 hits were three more than any professional player has recorded in any month since Major League Baseball Advanced Media began tracking statistics in 2005. A native of Scottsdale, Ariz., Bourjos was drafted in the 10th round of the 2005 draft out of Notre Dame Prep High School.
Trumbo, 24, has appeared in 133 games for the Bees this season, hitting .301 (154-for-512) while leading the PCL in home runs (34), RBI (115) and runs scored (99). In August, Trumbo scored 30 runs (league-high) and brought in 28 runs (tied for third). The 6-4, 220-pound right-handed hitter has also set a new Salt Lake franchise record with 34 home runs, breaking the old record of 32 by Chad Rupp set in 1997.
Named a 2010 PCL Midseason All-Star, Trumbo became the fifth player in franchise history to reach 30 home runs in a season and the ninth player to drive in 100 or more runs. Since the All-Star break, he owns a .357 batting average with 14 home runs and 45 RBI. The Anaheim, Calif. native was originally selected by the Angels in the 18th round of the 2004 draft out of Villa Park High School.
The PCL postseason awards are given based on the voting of the league's field managers, general managers, broadcasters and media. The field manager and general manager from each of the 16 PCL clubs submit one ballot, while the broadcasters and media from each of the 16 markets submit a second ballot, for a total of 32 ballots.
