acquired today from BOS for Danny Valencia 21 yr old (Nov bday ) switch hitting OF 36gms 56/133 for a . 421/.447/.534 line w/ 9doubles 2triples 22rbi 22k 5bb. 2nd in GLC is .333BAve so its pretty impressive for ANYONE to hit .400 over that stretch. He also leads the GCL in slgg w/.534 & RBI w/22 & is 2nd in SB w/14 (caught 7 times) Hitting .354 (17/48) vs lefties 6doubles triple 8k 2bb Hitting .459 (39/85) vs righties 3doubles 2triples 14k 3bb

Not if he signed as a 20 year old like Pineda did... the 16 year olds might be a different story

Thrylos, I asked this in the other thread, too but do you know why he wasn't signed until he was 20 (or almost 20)? Is there a Dominican league that he was playing in?

Exactly, something doesn't smell right given his numbers this year.

See ya Danny. I wonder if the Sox use him as a backup 1B/3B, essentially Youk-very-lite. I know he was sent to Pawtucket, but the Sox roster almost certainly will get quite a changeover in the next three weeks in a row.

I see him as a backup 1b/3b/DH to hit vs lefties. Fulltime starter out of question if a team is healthy.

On Pineda, most of us would assume that 21 is too old for GCL & still old for ELIZ....BUT 21 yr olds do play there & a promotion there would be good for him. What more can he do in GCL??

WHOM would you promote & to where out of the current ELIZ OF??
Personally, it would be Romy Jimmenez to Beloit for me.
Rene Tosoni was the last player I remember goin straight from ELIZ to Ft Myers & skipping Low A (played 2 end of season gms there). He was 20 in ELIZ & I think as a 20 yr old college guy, Adam Walker 'could' jump over a league with a strong finish, giving 2012 Beloit.....Buxton, Jimmenez, Pineda & Keplar in the OF.

Not a lot of direction to go comedically with the Twins-Way-One-Note-Samba.
