2011-12: Another spot where there’s been constant change. Numbers put up mainly by the J.D. Drew, Josh Reddick, Darnell McDonald, and Mike Cameron were easily surpassed in 2012 by Cody Ross and Ryan Sweeney (meanwhile Reddick, traded for Andrew Bailey, became a star in Oakland).
2013: Enter Shane Victorino, who bounced back after a rough 2012 personally to provide stability both at the plate and in the outfield, successfully replacing Ross, one of the few bright spots on the ‘12 squad. Victorino, 33, set career bests in batting average (.297), at-bats per RBI (7.74) and average on balls in play (.325).
