"Every player wants that, to play every day," Nunez said. "In my case, it was kind of frustrating to not get that opportunity. It was always hard, personally, but with patience and learning and working, everything worked out."
"I love it," said Nunez, limited by a hamstring injury down the stretch and in a four-game NL Division Series defeat to the Cubs. "That's great. The competition is fun and that's what makes you better."
