Most pleasant surprise: Matt Dominguez

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

We knew Dominguez was a good defender. But his sudden surge of power and uncanny ability to drive in runs has been a pleasant surprise. Dominguez leads the team in RBIs with 44 and is second with eleven homers. He’s done it mainly hitting in the number eight spot in the order and despite not hitting a homerun until the 37th game of the season. The 23-year old is making that Carlos Lee trade look like the deal of the century.
