RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Valaika began the year at Double-A Hartford and broke out at the plate, bashing 49 extra-base hits (including 13 home runs) to go with a .269/.314/.450 slash line. This success helped the 24-year-old garner a promotion to Triple-A Albuquerque, although his performance was middling at best at that level. Despite this, injuries at the major league level and an emphasis on evaluating younger talent helped Valaika get his first taste of big league action via a September callup. He was very limited in his opportunities, but he made the most of his at-bats, going 5-for-19 with a home run and a double. Although he moved quickly this season, the infielder's success will be tough to sustain, as he walked less than six percent of the time across all levels this season while posting strikeout rates north of 20 percent. Valaika's sound defense and versatility could land him a utility job at the major league level in the future, but his low prospect status and high propensity to strike out will likely keep him irrelevant in fantasy terms.
