This WeekValdespin: 4-for-10 (.400), 3B, 3 RBI, SB. Valdespin pinch-hit Friday and stayed in the game at shortstop. Otherwise, in his other 10 appearances, he's played second.
Zapata: 7-for-18 (.389), 1 3B. Zapata's week looks better thanks to a three-hit game on Sunday. He's mixed his time between centerfield and left.
Flores: 2-for-11, 0 XBH, 2 BB, 2 K - 4 games with an AB. Flores, primarily played third base, continued that run, picking up starts at the hot corner on Wednesday and Thursday. This isn't news, he played some third for the Bravos last year too. However, over the weekend, he picked up two starts at second base. This is new. As far as I can tell, this is the first time that Flores has played second base in a professional game.
Satin: 1-14, HR, 2 BB, 7 K
