Phillies Get Valentin from Dodgers

The Phillies announced this evening they have acquired Class A second baseman Jesmuel Valentin from the Dodgers as the first of two players to be named in the Roberto Hernandez trade.

MLB.com ranked Valentin as the No. 13 prospect in the Dodgers’ organization.

Selected 51st overall as a supplement pick in the 2012 First-Year Player Draft, Valentin was hitting .282 with 22 doubles, nine triples, seven home runs, 47 RBIs and a .785 OPS in 107 games with Great Lakes.

He struggled in 33 games with Great Lakes last season, posting a .618 OPS, but has improved at the plate this season.

So this guy jumps from the #13 best prospect in the Dodgers organization to the #1 prospect in the Phillies’ disorganization?
