The Phillies have dealt 33-year old righty swinging infielder Wilson Valdez to the Cincinnati Reds for 26-year old lefty reliever Jeremy Horst. Valdez played in 99 games for the Phillies last season and he was 68 for 273 (.249 avg, .634 OPS) with 39 runs scored, 1 homer, 30 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. He played in 210 games in his two years with the Phillies and he was 154 for 606 (.254 avg, .652 OPS) with 76 runs scored, 5 homers, 65 RBIs and 10 stolen bases. Jeremy Horst got his first taste of the majors last year for the Reds. He pitched in 12 games (0 starts) for the Reds last year and he was 0-0 with a 2.93 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP. Horst also pitched in 36 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball last year and he was 1-4 with a 2.81 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP. This looks like a trade that could help both teams.
