If there was ever a time for a player to not turn in a poor performance, it’d be the final two weeks of the regular season. Pennant and wild-card races are neck and neck, with division crowns and postseason dreams hanging on every pitch and every swing.

For some, such as the San Francisco Giants’ Hunter Pence, the job of turning those dreams into reality fell to their teammates, as Pence and the rest of this week’s All-Dud squad were unable to contribute much of anything to the cause.

As usual, players on contending teams who deliver dud-worthy performances will get the nod over those not on contending clubs as we fill out our roster. Normally, that includes one player per position, including a designated hitter and starting pitcher.

However, there wasn’t a worthy DH candidate last week, with an average .292/.370/.634 slash line from the guys who rarely, if ever, get a chance to play the field. So we’ll roll with a nine-man squad this time around.

Who joined Pence on this week’s team? Let’s take a look.
