The trade of Valdez may trigger the Phillies to make another move or they could simply rely on Michael Martinez for all of their utility needs. It would be nice if they could find another bench piece that could give them a few decent at-bats while filling in at the various infield positions.
As for Horst, he made his big league debut last season with the Reds at the age of 26. He probably won't be a contender for a bullpen role with the Phils and should slide right into the Iron Pigs pen. What, did you expect the Phillies to actually get a useful player in return for Valdez?
