Phillies To Designate Wilson Valdez For Assignment?

Phillies infielder Wilson Valdez, who is out of options, will likely be bumped to make space for the returning Jimmy Rollins, writes Todd Zolecki of MLB.com.  This means that Valdez must clear waivers in order to remain with the club.  Valdez was summoned from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to fill Rollins' spot on the roster.

The highlight of Valdez's stint with the Phillies came on April 28th against the Giants when he scored the game-winning run.  On the season, he has an OPS of .596 in 48 plate appearances which is slightly better than his major league career average.  However, he has a career 9.9 UZR/150 at the shortstop position.

Valdez, who turns 32-years-old on Thursday, has also made major league cameos with the White Sox, Mariners, Padres, Dodgers, and Mets.
