WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Vallejo was unable to play in 2012 due to some sort of contract issue.  He’s described as very athletic, so maybe he’ll be able to stay at short.  Despite his lack of pro experience, he was already 22 by the time he played a pro game.  Perhaps because of that, the Pirates brought him to camp and assigned him to the GCL before he’d played in the DSL.

2013
R:  306/325/468, 111 AB, 5 2B, 2 3B, 3 HR, 2 BB, 14 K, 4-5 SB

Vallejo hit well in his first pro season, with surprising power, although he showed little inclination to draw a walk.  Other than a few games at third, he spent all his time in left.  No doubt this was because the Pirates had Trae Arbet and Carlos Ozuna at short, but it probably indicates they don’t view Vallejo as ore than an organizational player.

Vallejo could move up to Jamestown in 2014 or he could serve as a utility player in class A, depending on how the Pirates view him.
