For the second straight season, Valencia played in 130 games after averaging 72 from 2012-2015. The Mariners played Valencia primarily at first base, depriving him of the third-base and outfield eligibility he’s enjoyed the previous two years. After batting .290 and .287 in 2015 and 2016, Valencia’s average plummeted to .256, a result of a drop in contact in tandem with a below-average hard-hit rate. Valencia’s down season was punctuated by a terrible September where he slashed just .148/.333/.259 after rosters expanded. He maintained his mid-teens power, but in today’s power-happy climate, that’s nothing, especially from a first baseman. Valencia played 2017 on a one-year contract, setting himself up to play for his eighth organization since debuting in 2010. There’s a chance Valencia picks up position flexibility in-season, but he will begin the season eligible at just first base in most leagues and is at best a corner or utility in single league formats.
