Valentine is honored

CHICAGO -- It was hard to tell whether or not Joe Valentine was the least wanted or the most wanted pitcher in baseball last off-season.

It's not so hard anymore.

Valentine, a 22-year-old right-hander, bounced around three organizations over the winter before returning to the White Sox and proving that he's a hot commodity by winning the Minor League Rolaids Relief Man award.

Valentine had a minors-league best 36 saves to lead Double-A Birmingham to a berth in the Southern League playoffs. He also had a save in the Barons' first two playoff wins.

"He's been solid for us all year long," White Sox general manager Ken Williams said. "To a large degree he's as much responsible as anyone for that club achieving what it has this season."

The 114 points Valentine earned for his 36 saves and four victories were 18 more than that of the runner-ups, Dayton's Nathan Cotton and Vero Beach's Lino Urdaneta.
