In the Arizona Fall League, Mets prospect Jordany Valdespin is hitting .355 with one home run and 11 RBI with three doubles, a triple, and seven stolen bases in 19 games, and has hit .386 against right handed hitters.

Valdespin, a middle infielder, appeared in the AFL Rising Stars game on Saturday, and went 1 for 2.

In a recent ten game hitting streak, the soon-to-be 23 year old Valdespin had six multi-hit games over that span.

He has struggled defensively, committing a team high six errors this fall.

He had a good season with Single-A St. Lucie, hitting .289 with six home runs and 33 RBI, stealing 13 of 23 bases. He struggled after being promoted to Double-A Binghamton, hitting just .232 with 23 strikeouts in 112 at bats.
