Ethier may be the odd man out in the Los Angeles Dodgers’ crowded outfield, but he has still had a very steady career. As a .288 lifetime hitter, he has become the walk-off king in Los Angeles and was awarded in 2012 with a five-year deal worth $85 million.
When the injury carousel made its way around the Dodgers' outfield last season, Ethier filled in to cover all three positions and only had two errors on the year. If the injury bug continues to bite the Dodgers, he will be expected to come to the rescue again.
In the 2012, Pagan was a critical part of the San Francisco Giants’ championship run, as he hit .288, swiped 29 bags and led the National League with 15 triples. Despite his memorable walk-off inside-the-park home run, Pagan had a forgettable 2013, appearing in just 71 games due to a hamstring injury.
If Pagan can return to his 2012 form, he would give the Giants a huge spark at the top of the order and help set the table for Buster Posey, Hunter Pence and Pablo Sandoval.
