Was set for Opening Day roster, but Russell Martin raced back from injury. He came on after Brad Ausmus got hurt, but had an anemic .510 OPS. Finally, after Martin went down in August, things clicked. Had an .833 OPS, including a .561 OBP in September. ... Highlight: RBI single in the bottom of the 11th June 6 helped beat Atlanta. ... Lowlight: More than two years since his last HR. ... Sidelight: Had six multiple-hit games, and L.A. lost first five by a combined score of 39-9.
