Left Fielder: Pat Burrell

Stats: 560 PA, .252 BA, 128 OPS+, 51 XBH (25 HR), 72 RBI, 58 R, 3.1 WAR

The Giants signed Pat Burrell off the scrapheap on May 29, 2010, after he was released by the Tampa Bay Rays following a slow start to the season.

The 33-year-old went on to hit .266/.364/.509 with 16 doubles, 18 home runs and 51 RBI in 341 plate appearances for 2.1 WAR, adding some welcome power to an offense that sorely lacked it beyond Aubrey Huff and Juan Uribe.

He was brought back on a one-year, $1 million deal and posted a 115 OPS+ in 219 plate appearances during the 2011 season before calling it a career.
