Help From Unexpected Places

New, comments

The offense has needed you.

With slow seasons from a couple of key players, youth and inexperience abounding and very little power, from Opening Day the Minnesota offense looked better on paper than it was on the field.  Luckily, there's been some help from unexpected sources this season, and those performances have helped off-set disappointing performances from others.

You know who they are.

Name AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB SO AVG OBP SLG
Alexi Casilla 165 26 53 10 0 4 34 13 17 .321 .366 .455
Brian Buscher 66 12 22 3 0 1 17 4 6 .333 .361 .424
Denard Span 46 9 14 3 0 0 4 7 9 .304 .396 .370

The three of them have combined for a .321/.377/.433 line, including five homers and 16 doubles in 277 at-bats.  A 3:4 walk-to-strikeout ratio is pretty good, too.
