Jordany Valdespin 2B/CF MIA 4 Days

Marlins manager Mike Redmond indicated Saturday that Jordany Valdespin will see regular playing time at second base for the time being.

Valdespin is starting at second and in the No. 2 spot in the batting order Sunday for the second time in as many games since being promoted. "Our offense has been slow and sluggish, so we are looking for a guy that can hit at the top of the order . and get us going a little bit," Redmond said. Valdespin is only a .220/.271/.378 hitter across 354 career plate appearances, but he has a little bit of pop and can run, so the 26-year-old is worth a shot in deeper leagues while he's hitting in front of Giancarlo Stanton.
