BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2015 Being one of the P's T B N'd L in the Roberto Hernandez deal tells you what you need to know about Jose's kid. He isn't a blue chip prospect, more like his uncle Javier than like his dad at the plate, and less like John (unrelated) than his dad with the glove. He was unimpressive in his organizational debut, but they had jumped him a level and he was nearly three years younger than league average. He's one to watch.
2014 Switch-hitters who can play in the middle of the diamond get a long leash; prospects with big-league bloodlines are especially revered in the Dodger organization. The son of Jose Valentin has inherited much of pop's skill set, from positional flexibility to a patient approach at the plate. Valentin is still an apprentice in the craft of pitch recognition and identifying those that he can drive, but he sees enough pitches per game to augment his education. Valentin has his work cut out for him in the years ahead, but he also possesses the defensive chops to hold down the keystone if his bat continues to develop.
2013 The son of former major-league infielder Jose Valentin was chosen 51st in the 2012 draft out of the Puerto Rico Baseball Academy and High School, where he played second base alongside overall top pick Carlos Correa. Bypassing a scholarship to Louisiana State University—a mistake in the eyes of some—he signed for the recommended slot bonus of $984,700. A natural righty who has only been switch-hitting for a couple of years, Valentin's bag of tools includes a strong, accurate arm with a quick release, above-average range, average speed, and a line-drive approach. He struggled at the plate in his professional debut, however, showing stiff swing mechanics and swinging late on fastballs and over off-speed pitches. He'll need time to mature, particularly on the offensive side.
