Most definately. Frazier has shown to all he is not SS material. I get the impression the Reds very much so, want Valaika to become their decent SS with a good bat real soon. They will give him every opportunity to be just that. If all goes well, I see him in Louisville before the season is far along, if he doesn't start there.
