Danny Valencia can mash righties too

Danny Valencia is a more complete hitter than you might think. The more I look at the Mariners’ acquisition of Danny Valencia, the more I love it. The easy analysis sees Valencia as a lefty masher, who can competently play at any of the corner positions. Over the last four years, he’s sporting a 148 wRC+ against southpaws, good for 12th in the majors. Jerry Dipoto recognized a need and filled it with someone who has truly excelled. But over the last two years, Danny Valencia has shown that he’s not just a lefty masher, he’s been able to hit right-handed pitching too. First, let’s...

A’s trade Danny Valencia to Seattle for pitcher from East Bay

Danny Valencia resurrected his career as an everyday player with his strong offensive numbers in Oakland, but Saturday, the A’s sent the much traveled outfielder-third baseman to the Mariners in exchange for right-hander Paul Blackburn, who is from Brentwood. Valencia, 32, said he feels good about heading to Seattle, where the Mariners have a team on the rise and plan to use him primarily at first base. Valencia, who hit 28 homers and drove in 88 runs in 177 games with Oakland, said he heard from many A’s teammates Saturday. Blackburn, who will be 23 on Dec. 4, played at Heritage High...

Oakland A's trade Danny Valencia to Seattle for RHP Paul Blackburn

The A's make their first major move of the offseason, and it's pretty predictable. The A's have done what they've been trying to do for months and finally offloaded Danny Valencia. In return, they get Paul Blackburn, the Mariners' #18 prospect according to MLB Pipeline. On the surface, Danny Valencia has had a pretty good tenure in Oakland, since he was claimed on waivers from the Blue Jays last August. His line of .287/.346/.446 was among the best on the team, and he hit in the middle of the lineup for most of the year. However, he did just about everything else badly – including being...
