Since he has no batting skills to speak of one might think he would be a pesky hitter, that he would work the pitcher and all that. Wrong. Valdez sees a miserable 3.43 pitches per plate appearance. He also swings at nearly 41% of the pitches that he sees that are outside of the strike zone.
It is going to be renamed "The Valdez Line"
