Question of the Day, 6/4 …

What do you see happening with J.B. Shuck when Peter Bourjos comes back? He has been really good in my book. — @GareGare84

Shuck has been fantastic, more than the Angels could’ve imagined, but he’ll go back to the bench once Bourjos is activated (perhaps as soon as late this week). He’ll continue to be valuable, though. You saw late tonight the importance of having an outfielder off the bench, when Howie Kendrick played left field in the eighth and Mark Trumbo went there in the ninth, eliminating the designated hitter. Not only that, Shuck (.278/.323/.348) is a great guy to have off the bench. He can run, plays solid defense, and he has a short, lefty swing that’s ideal for pinch-hitting. The Angels were lucky to pick him up off the scrap heap.
