  1. If the Twins can get that kind of production (.350 wOBA, +2.5 defense, and 3 WAR) from their third baseman, they will take that any day of the week.

    It has been far too long since the Twins have a productive, competent hitter at the hot corner.

  2. BTW, FG’s player page for Danny Valencia needs some attention.

  3. Yeah, it needs to be connected to his Major League page, which is here: http://www.fangraphs.com/statss.aspx?playerid=6364&position=3B

    It’s a laborious process, but someone will get to it soon. I’ll get it linked in the article, too, shortly.

  4. Ah! There is the page I was looking for.

    Thanks, Bryan.

  5. SSS and all, but the guy has shown the ability to hit line drives on a consistent basis – holding a 20.3% LD rate.

    As a Twins fan, I certainly don’t expect his recent run to continue…but I do think he will be a productive major league player, even without the glaring power that most people would want out of their third baseman.

  6. When you’ve had years with a glaring LACK of power, that’s not a big concern.

  7. If Danny can be a cheap 2 win player for this team for the next few years I’ll do backflips.

  8. He’s not exactly cheap, but Punto’s been producing at a rate much better than a 2 win player this year (1.5 WARin 261 PA’s). Saving $4M would be nice, but let’s hope we don’t take that much of a drop in production.
