2B Jose Vallejo


  1. What would be the harm in re-signing Gervacio? I always really liked him. He reminded me of a mini-Marmol. Also wasn't Vallejo the supposedly really good prospect we got from the Rangers for Pudge who cut his hand? What ever happened with that?

  2. I'd personally love to see Gervacio back for entertainment value alone! He did a pretty good job in the minors in 2011, but he is 27 now so that may be a factor with the powers-that-be.

    Vallejo is the player who cut his hand to the bone in early 2010 and sliced tendons. He hasn't gotten back to where he was offensively since the accident, but his fielding has been fine.
