Bourjos (hip) underwent offseason hip surgery, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The surgery, which he had in October, was done to alleviate chronic pain he'd been experiencing in his hip, as well as to repair cartilage damage. Bourjos should be good to go by spring training, in time to compete for a starting role in a crowded St. Louis outfield.

Bourjos is not in the lineup Monday, Fox Sports Midwest reports.

Jon Jay will play center field with Oscar Taveras in right, so Bourjos will start this game on the bench. He had started five of the last six games, and has two hits in four of those games, so look for him to be back in center field in the near future.

Peter Bourjos got a rare start Monday and went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored against the Braves.

It's one thing for the Cardinals to play Jon Jay over Bourjos against righties, but Bourjos hadn't even been starting against lefties lately. The start tonight was his first since Apr. 26. Now that he has a good game under his belt, maybe his playing time will begin ticking up again.
