BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 The Dodgers' top human-interest story late in the season was 16-year minor-league masher (219 homers, 1,579 hits) John Lindsey. Alas, although Lindsey became the oldest non-Japanese rookie to reach the majors since Alan Zinter in 2002, his moment in the sun was abbreviated when a Daniel Hudson pitch broke his hand, requiring surgery.
