A day late on this, but: The Dodgers sent infielder Jesmuel Valentin to the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday as one of two players to be named (or cash considerations) in the August 7 trade for Roberto Hernandez.
Valentin, 20, was batting .282 with seven home runs and 47 RBI in 107 games with Single-A Great Lakes in his third professional season after being selected by the Dodgers with the 51st overall pick in the supplemental round in the 2012 draft. On Friday, Valentin went 3 for 4 with a home run; he had a .300/.355/.471 slash line in his final 28 days in the Dodgers’ organization.
Valentin is the son of former major-league player Jose Valentin.
Hernandez has gone 1-0 with a 2.25 ERA in two starts with the Dodgers since the trade.
