Re: 7/6/07 Reds vs Diamondbacks
Mackanin said he'd like to try to get Valentin about three starts a week behind the plate. Javy said his defense and confidence was hurt when Jerry Narron said he wasn't going to use him much as a catcher. He said now he feels like he's back at spring training. He was out before the game working and has been doing extra workouts before the game since Monday.
