RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Javier Valentin.

2008

Once he got out from the pinch-hit role he was pigeon-holed into by former manager Jerry Narron, Valentin started hitting like he's capable of. With the offseason hiring of manager Dusty Baker, Valentin's role is once again unclear. Working against him is his reputation as a subpar defensive catcher.

2007

After a bit of a breakout 2005 season, Valentin's playing time got squeezed in the Reds' three-catcher arrangement last year. It could be a case of more of the same in 2007, with David Ross penciled in as the starter and Chad Moeller to be the defensive substitute. Valentin could find himself primarily in a pinch-hit role again, which is a bit of a waste of his bat.

2006

Part of a highly effective catching platoon for the Reds, Valentin pounded right-handers at a .301/.364/.557 clip in 2005. Valentin's full platoon role didn't fully develop until midseason, so look for him to get more at-bats in 2006.

2005

Valentin is borderline acceptable as a backup catcher. As a first baseman, as the Reds used him occasionally, he's Double-A material with the bat.

2003

Valentin was acquired by the Brewers this winter and will be given a chance to compete for the backup catcher spot this spring. He had a decent year at Triple-A Edmonton, showing a little power, albeit in a hitter-friendly park in a hitter-friendly league.
