From MLB.com’s Mark Sheldon comes word that Reds infielder Chris Valaika has been cleared by team doctors to begin light running and throwing.

Valaika was shut down in early September after tearing his right ACL during a game against the Rockies. He eventually underwent surgery.

The Reds are fully expecting the 26-year-old to be back to 100 percent health by the start of spring training next February. He’ll be looking to lock up a spot on the Cincinnati bench after batting .280/.333/.400 across 27 plate appearances in 2011.

    Seems like a quick recovery from a torn ACL.
