Valencia will join the Blue Jays in Boston before Tuesday's game, Sportsnet's Mike Wilner reports.
Acquired in a Monday evening trade, Valencia figures to see regular playing time against left-handed pitching, and may also draw some starts against righties. He'll very likely be in Wednesday's lineup against Boston's Jon Lester, but won't necessarily get the start Tuesday versus right-handed Rubby De La Rosa. Once the Jays start to get healthy -- which will likely happen by mid-August -- Valencia figures to see his playing time decrease.
