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.
Sadly I don't think much of Valakia anymore. I think he is maxed out as a utility player and if Frazier plays 2b at AAA I don't see Valakia as anything more than a tradeable piece.
I think Frazier will have the best season. I think he forces himself onto the big league club by June.
