Cardinals' Breyvic Valera: Rejoins big-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valera was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Thursday, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Memphis fell in the Triple-A National Championship game earlier in the week, freeing Valera up to return to the major-league team for the final week-plus. Valera is a versatile defender and a switch-hitter who put together a solid .314/.368/.450 line with Memphis this season, but the 25-year-old lacks standout power or speed, profiling best as a utility player at the highest level.

Cardinals' Breyvic Valera: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valera was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Monday.

The Cardinals recalled Magneuris Sierra as a corresponding move. Memphis finishes Pacific League play Sept. 17, at which point Valera will likely rejoin the big-league club, serving in a bench role. He hit .314/.368/.450 with eight home runs and 11 steals in 117 games at Triple-A this year and should compete for a bench spot on the 2018 roster in spring training.

Cardinals' Breyvic Valera: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valera was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Matt Carpenter and Tommy Pham both left Monday's game with shoulder injuries, so the Cardinals called for depth reinforcements. Valera hit .314/.368/.450 with eight home runs and 11 steals in 117 games at Triple-A, and can play second base, third base, left field and right field.

Cardinals' Breyvic Valera: Struggling over first nine spring games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valera, who went 0-for-2 in Thursday's 3-0 Grapefruit League loss to the Astros, is hitting just .188 over his first 16 spring at-bats.

The 24-year-old second baseman was added to the 40-man roster after a spectacular 2016 campaign at Triple-A Memphis. He slashed .341/.417/.415 with 14 doubles, one triple, 31 RBI, 31 walks, 32 runs and eight stolen bases over 257 plate appearances, along with a .377 wOBA and minuscule 8.6 percent strikeout rate. However, he's found success this spring hard to come by thus far, albeit over a small sample. Valera offers next to nothing in the power department, but his elite contact rate -- one that's been at 90 percent or better in nine of 11 minor league stops -- and his above-average ability to get on base make him an intriguing prospect. He's very likely to head back down to Memphis to start 2017, but a reunion with the major league club later in the season is certainly a possibility if he continues to dominate at the minor league level.
