Wilson Valdez sold to Kia Tigers

Meant to post this (much) earlier today, but I forgot. If you’re scoring at home, remove infielder Wilson Valdez from your 40-man roster. The Dodgers sold him today to the Kia Tigers of the Korean League. He was with the Dodgers the past two season, most of which he spent lighting up Las Vegas — he hit a combined .316 for the 51s in 2006 and ’07 — but he wasn’t so great when the Dodgers gave him a shot at the big-league level, where he hit just .216 in 41 games, all in 2007. He didn’t figure to get much of a shot this year if he had stayed. The Dodgers already have Tony Abreu and probably Chin-lung Hu as backup middle infielders. Roster now at 39.
