The Blue Jays sent some cash to the Cleveland Indians for infielders Luis Valbuena. The Indians had designated him for assignment and the Jays were able to work out a deal for him rather then taking their chances on him getting through waivers. The move now gives the Jays 40 men on their 40 man roster so they’re filled to capacity at the moment.
So far, Valbuena has been great in the minors but pretty bad at the plate in a big league uniform. In Triple A, he hit .302 with some pop last season but in 229 major league games, he’s hit just .226. At this point, we’re not quite sure how the Jays are going to use him but a potential power bat at second base is something that’s good to have no matter what.
