Future Star: Jordany Valdespin could possibly win the 2B job this spring


Remember the name Jordany Valdespin, He was on the Mets 40 man roster in 2011 and invited to shared some time with the team last spring. He started his season in Binghamton with Wally Backman and moved his way to the Triple-A level with Tim Teufel , who now is the Mets 3rd base coach..

Valdespin could be the answer the Mets are looking for at second base. The Mets also have Justin Turner and Daniel Murphy, who could get a shot playing there everyday or might get the 3rd baseman job by default, if David Wright is traded this off-season.

There a couple of reasons to like Valdespin.. For One, The kid hits and hits for power.  Valdespin big lefty swing had 17 HRs with 32 doubles and 3 triples last year combined between Binghamton and Buffalo... He also hit .294. combined with a .333 OBP. (which should improve over time). Valdespin also has some speed, as he swiped 37 bases (Combined).. His speed can compensate the loss of Jose Reyes, which so far looks like a reality coming to the Mets..

Jordany Valdespin right now is playing for the Tigres del Licey in the Dominican Winter League where he only batting .220 in 59 AB's, but has time to improve that since the league ends 12/21/11...
