Jordany Valdespin Signs with Marlins

In case you missed it, Jordany Valdespin has signed a minor-league contract with the Miami Marlins.

He did NOT receive an invitation to spring training, so he’ll presumably begin the year in AAA, with New Orleans.

    Not getting an invite means there wasn’t one team who would give him one. This guy is in sad sad shape.

    .219 is “hitting”?
