Danny Valencia

Danny Valencia 


O's might want to start considering him...as a DH maybe or as a spare outfielder..or even audition him at 2nd base.
He is tearing up the I.L.  with a .306 BA, 14 doubles, 11 HR's and 35 RBI. He is tied for 1st in HR's and is 3rd in RBI. Perhaps he has finally found his stroke that made him so valuable when he first came up with the Twins.
In any event, why the O's are still tinkering with Flaherty, when someone like this is waiting in the Wings is beyond me. I see they are auditioning Navarro at 2nd..but Valencia I believe is ready for another shot....somewhere.
Thoughts on this?

Good to see him hitting. Can he even play second base though? I thought he was strictly a corner infielder.

RE: Danny Valencia 


he played some 2nd base with Rochester. He is fairly versatile...not outstanding...but the O's don't need 'outstanding'--they just need 'good'. I'd bring him up. they didn't get him to play in AAA...but he had a terrible season last year and needed a bounceback. Its time to give him a shot since all the other alternatives are clearly no better.
