Shortstop Elvis Andrus (.353/.411/.471) excelled despite being the youngest player in the Fall League at 19-years-old. Andrus had four doubles, one triple, and five stolen bases in 15 games.

Third baseman Chris Davis (.231/.412/.462) had his AFL campaign cut short due to a foot injury. He appeared in just four games and went 3-for-13 with a home run.

Infielder German Duran (.281/.385/.422) put up solid numbers in the Fall League while spending time at second base, shortstop, and third base. The 23-year-old had one double, one triple, and two home runs in 64 at-bats.

Right fielder John Mayberry (.214/.306/.405) struggled after a hot start. The slugger appeared in 23 games, going 18-for-84 at the plate with one double and five home runs. He had 11 walks versus 17 punchouts.

Reliever Scott Feldman (4.24 ERA/.250 BAA) went to the Fall League to work on a new three-quarters delivery and was inconsistent. The 24-year-old hurler held a 4.24 ERA in 17 innings, yielding 16 hits, walking eight, and fanning 16.

Left-handed starter Matt Harrison (2.00 ERA/.174 BAA) proved to be one of the top pitchers in the AFL in seven starts. The former Braves prospect posted a 5-0 record and yielded only 16 hits in 27 innings. Harrison went through a four start stretch where he gave up no runs on two hits in 15 frames.

Danny Herrera (2.53 ERA/.212 BAA) walked more (6) than he struck out (5) over 10.2 innings, but he permitted just seven hits. Five of Herrera's seven hits allowed came in two of his 10 relief appearances.

Righty Kea Kometani (1.80 ERA/.143 BAA) was impressive in 10 innings, as he struck out 17 batters and gave up only five hits. The 6-foot-4 product of Pepperdine University fanned at least two batters in six of his eight one-inning appearances.
