The happiest place on Earth was next to the 33-year-old after his call-up from the minors, 15 years after he was drafted. He missed a more fairy-tale finish when he suffered a broken bone on a Daniel Hudson pitch Sept. 27. ... Highlight: After his first appearance in a game Sept. 8 and his first at-bat the next night, he knocked his first hit Sept. 12 at Houston. ... Lowlight: The HBP ended his season. ...
