Former Major League utilityman Wilson Valdez has signed with the Camden Riversharks as reported on the team’s official website. Valdez, who turned 35 years old on May 20, spent last season with the Reds, posting a .463 OPS in 208 trips to the plate while playing at short stop, second base, third base, and center field. The Giants had signed him to a Minor League deal for the 2013 but released him during spring training. He was picked up by the Marlins but dropped a week later in favor of Chris Valaika.

Valdez is still remembered in Philadelphia for pitching a scoreless inning of relief in the 19th inning and earning the win against the Reds on May 25, 2011.

    Piscivorous. Bad ass.

    And yet, Michael Martinez is on the Phillies for some reason.

    Exactly Mustbe……bring Valdez back at least he puts the effort in……Martinez just blows in every aspect. The Phillies need any help they can get… Valdez is probably better than half the bullpen!!

      And bringing him to back to the Phillies would be cheap- it would only cost them a bridge toll.

    Well…that now gives me one reason to go to Camden.

      So, you’re not in the market for smack or low-grade hookers then?
