PAWTUCKET â On his first official day as a member of the Pawtucket Red Sox, Danny Valencia found himself out of Wednesdayâs starting lineup. His placement under the âextra hittersâ portion of the lineup card only furthers the argument that itâs going to be tough for the 27-year-old to carve out regular playing time.
Valencia is a third baseman by trade, a position where heâs logged 2,281 innings in 262 big-league games. Coming over from the Minnesota Twins via trade on Sunday, Valencia joins a PawSox ballclub that's pretty well stocked at the hot corner.
