BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 A free swinger whose lack of discipline undermines a nice power-speed package, Valdez has been slow to convert his tools into skills. He has spent the last two seasons at shortstop but also has played more than 200 games at second base, where some observers believe his future lies. Which side of the bag he is on won't matter unless Valdez learns the difference between balls and strikes. Right-handers in particular gave him trouble last year, posting a better than 9-to-1 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Valdez's upside is that of a utility player, but he isn't there yet, although he made strides in the Arizona Fall League.
2012 Valdez is an athletic but erratic infielder from the Dominican Republic who has power, speed, and trouble controlling the strike zone. Valdez was old for his level in 2011 and has been slow to advance since joining the organization in 2006. His arm may not be strong enough for shortstop, but if he patches the holes in his game, he could be something. That said, he hasn't reached Double-A and those are large holes.
