Luis Valbuena: Opportunity Knocks
Update: Manager Dale Sveum announced Thursday that Valbuena will get the majority of the playing time at third base the rest of the way, Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Recommendation: Valbuena took a back seat to former first-rounder Josh Vitters after he was recalled earlier this month, but with Vitters hitting just .093 at the big league level, apparently Sveum prefers to give Valbuena another look. Valbuena doesn't offer much in terms of power or speed, but the extra at-bats will give him a minor value boost in NL-only leagues.
