Was 1-for-9 with five strikeouts in the ALCS and isn't likely to see much time in this World Series with no DH in NL park and Michael Young playing first. ... Hit memorable three-run homer in Game 3 of the 2010 World Series, helping the Rangers to their only win. ... Has struggled this season to get anything going consistently and with Napoli's hot bat and Young's ability to play first, he hasn't seen as much time in the lineup.
