What about Wilson Valdez he's putting up great numbers for the Knights.
Probably a setup guy in the bigs. He has a 89-92 mph fastball that he can get up to 94 on occasion. He throws a cutter/slider (call it a slutter if you want) and also a changeup. He has very good command. As good as his numbers have been in Birmingham, he has been nursing a groin injury the past month. They rested him some last week, allowing Matt Smith to pick up some saves. I think that helped, but he was clearly not himself the past few weeks, despite his success.
