Valdespin in RF again in winter ball

By Adam Rubin

Jordany Valdespin playing right field on Opening Day of the Dominican Winter League season apparently was no accident. Valdespin is back manning that position for Licey again on Tuesday night, in the winter-ball club's second game.

Terry Collins had indicated as the Mets' season closed that Valdespin was expected to play second base this winter, so the assignment may not be the preference of the Mets.
