Matt LaPorta had a terrific day at the plate in Thursday's victory over the Rangers, going 3-for-4 with a two-run homer.

The 27-year-old former top prospect is again struggling to make the most of his opportunity with the big club, hitting just .237 with a homer and three RBI in his first 38 at-bats. There's still plenty of potential here, but his window to make an impact is closing quickly.
