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.
