Cards agree to terms with OFs Jay, Bourjos

St. Louis, MO (SportsNetwork.com) - The St. Louis Cardinals have agreed to terms with outfielders Jon Jay and Peter Bourjos, avoiding salary arbitration.

Financial details of the one-year pacts were undisclosed.

Jay set career highs last season with 151 hits, 67 runs batted in and 27 doubles while batting .276 in 157 games. He also clubbed seven homers and last season established a club record with 245 consecutive games in the outfield without an error.

The 28-year-old veteran is a .293 hitter over four seasons with the Cardinals, but struggled in the postseason last October. He hit just .192 in 17 games and is a career .188 hitter over the last three postseasons.

Bourjos could eventually replace Jay in center field after being acquired from the Angels in a November trade that sent David Freese to southern California.

The 26-year-old Bourjos appeared in just 55 games last season for the Angels and hit .274. He was batting .333 on June 30 before suffering a right wrist fracture and didn't return until mid-August.

Known for his speed and defense, Bourjos has 21 outfield assists in three-plus major league seasons and is a career .251 hitter in 354 games.
