Gettin' to know Jordany Valdespin

Our old pal Jordany Valdespin is getting the start in LF today so I thought we would do a quick gettin' to know about our new outfielder with the super cool name.

JV has been in the Mets system since 2008 and has been a good prospect, putting up decent and consistent numbers at each level he has played. He spent his last year between AA and AAA Buffalo where he put up .280/.304/.411. He has also shown some impressive power and speed at AA Binghamton where he hit 15 homers and stole 33 bags. Another strong asset is his versatility, he has put in time at every position expect for C and 1B.

The one dark spot is that many reports often reference his "lack of maturity" and "insubordination". I can't seem to find any specific incidents of what he has done, but it certainly isn't a good sign. Let's hope it's LoMo style twitter issues and not ya' know, stabbed a guy in the neck in Boston.
