Re: Who will have the best overall season at AAA
Oh, and my choice is... Chris Valaika. He always seems to do better when he repeats a level. He's got a .900+ OPS bat in him, plays defense solid enough to at least be considered at SS, although he's likely now a 2B for life. And he seems humbled by last year. I think he could explode at the plate to the tune of .290 .360 .450, with the SLG potentially higher than that. He can hit, and play plus defense at 2B. breakout/comeback year for Valaika.
“I’ll just take my walk,” he said, to laughter. One reporter followed up that Hamilton might be able to score from first on a single. “If he does, that’s great. Isn’t that crazy? Think about that: I hit a single and got an RBI. Like I said, crude stat, right?”
