Latest Update Danny Valencia went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI in the Blue Jays win over the Cubs on Wednesday. Wed Sep, 10, 10:59 PM
Has decent power for an infielder, especially at lower levels, thanks to a big frame. Can be a solid run-producer. Can play a versatile role in the bigs.
Flaws: : Needs to improve his walk/strikeout ratio in order to produce more in the big leagues. Also needs to become more consistent, overall.
Valencia joined the hit parade the Blue Jays started against the Cubs pitching. Valencia had two hits today and has four hits in his last three games. Even though he is playing everyday for the offensive juggernaut that is the Toronto Blue Jays, he isn't a player that is worthy of a starting spot in your line up.Analyst: Colby Conway
Valencia had just one at-bat in Wednesday's win, but he made it count as he blasted his third home run of the season and his first since moving north of the boarder. Despite his solid effort, Velencia remains on the outside looking in as far as fantasy value is concerned, sitting with just 17 RBI through 175 at-bats in 2014. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Valencia's strength comes against left-handed pitchers, so with right-hander Max Scherzer on the mound, the team will turn to Munenori Kawasaki to play third base Saturday.Kawasaki is batting .294 with 19 runs scored over 143 at-bats this season.Analyst: Howard Bender
Valencia, who was up to .298/.345/.404 on year coming into Monday's loss to the White Sox, was hit in the left hand by a pitch and is listed as day-to-day. Analyst: Michael Pichan
