is currently hitting .344 in 131 at bats for the Charlotte Knights. When he was with the Florida Marlins AAA (Albuquerque Isotopes) he hit .319 with 19 stolen bases in 276 at bats.
Valdez is 26 years old and is mainly a singles hitter with good base stealing speed and a great glove at shortstop. It's nice to know that we have a replacement for Valentin when he retires. Jose is 34 years old afterall. I look for this kid to make the Sox roster next season as our backup shortstop/pinch runner.
One last thing, I'd like to thank Billy Koch for somehow having enough trade value left in him for the Sox to pull in a guy like Valdez from the Marlins. As much as I hated watching him blow save after save, it was nice he could net us Wilson Valdez.
