    Good point, especially if Valeika continues to develop as he has.

    Agreed. He could also pitch in blowouts.

    I suppose it's possible that he could have an offensive 'splosion this season and play his way into the starting picture, but that's a longshot. If he were that highly regarded by the organization, they would have signed more of a stopgap SS and not multiple years of Alex Gonzalez.

    From Baseball Prospectus:

    -Don't Believe The Hype: Shortstop Chris Valaika had a stunning debut last summer, earning Pioneer League MVP honors with a .324/.387/.520 line and putting together a league record 32-game hitting streak. He'll be bumped up to High A this year, and needs to show a more patient approach, and more importantly reverse some of the scouting reports that project an eventual move to second base.
    ---

    I personally have no problem with a future second baseman who can hit a little, but I think BP was just reacting to Valaika's surprise capturing of the league MVP, etc. The other neat thing about Chris is that he's a bit younger than your average '06 college draftee (such as Parker, Stubbs, Dorn, or Turner), not turning 22 until August of this year. Those other four guys will all be 23 by the end of the '07 calendar year.

    I am suprised to see Valentin at 1B when he is a catcher.

    He's logged a little bit of time at 1B over the last few years but not much.

    He plays 1B in the winter leagues on his brother Jose's team all the time. He's also filled in from time to time for the Reds, especially when Dave Miley was managing.
