Scouting Report
: Well-built third baseman had solid but unspectacular minor league production before coming out of nowhere to earn third place in American League Rookie of the Year voting in 2010. Below-average fielder. The Red Sox hope that a change of organizations will help to rejuvenate Valencia's career.  Projects as reliable organizational depth.
