Cody Ross was essentially a forgotten man once the Carlos Beltran trade occurred. He was left to sit the bench, but the struggles of Andres Torres has really opened up a door for Ross.
Ross is a great candidate to take over for Torres in center based on his speed and power. The Giants lineup is better off with Ross than with Torres.
Ross has eight home runs and 34 RBI on the season, to go with 18 2B.
Cody Ross now has a great opportunity to get back some starting time. He struggled in July only hitting .193, but had a .304 OBP.
Torres OBP sits at .320 while Ross OBP sits at .344. Andres Torres was a great story last season, but his playing time should drop in favor of Cody Ross.
