News: Valencia will join the Blue Jays in Boston before Tuesday's game, Sportsnet's Mike Wilner reports. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )

News: Valencia has been traded to the Blue Jays for Liam Hendriks and Erik Kratz, Josh Vernier of 610 AM in Kansas City reports. Impact: Buried in a platoon with Mike Moustakas, Valencia may have a slightly clearer path to playing time in an injured Toronto infield. At the very least, he'll be an asset against left-handed starting pitchers, but he'll play half of his games in a more hitter-friendly environment either way.(RotoWire, )

News: Valencia drove in the only Royals run Monday, singling home Alex Gordon in the fourth inning. Impact: Valencia has hit well in part-time duty for Kansas City this season, and this month has been no exception. Valencia has eight hits and three RBI in 23 July at-bats.(RotoWire, )
