Can one of our resident experts give me a status report on Valido....i.e. when do you figure he'll be read for the majors.

If he keeps hitting like he has (.208-1-11 8 sb's), it will be awhile. That being said, B-ham is a tough place to hit, he's young for the league, and his plate discipline (13bb, 24k in 168 ab's) hasn't lagged like his average. His D looks strong, with only 2 errors on the year, and from what I've heard, good range, instincts, and a strong arm. I don't know if Valido will ever be the homegrown plus shortstop we've all been hoping for, but he does have room to grow and could be a solid middle infielder in the years to come.

I have seen him play defense. He has all the instincts and the athleticism that you want in a shortstop.

I concur with what Britt Burns said (Britt was one of my faves back in the day...hip injury really derailed his career, but he was a battler)....I think we have a couple nice SS prospects...2 errors is not shabby at all.
