Problem Child: Valdespin Suspended For Insubordination
Jordany Valdespin had a two-week absence from playing for his winter-ball club in the Dominican Republic because of a team-imposed suspension for insubordination, two sources told ESPN New York.
The discipline issue was comparable to the maturity problems the Mets have experienced with Valdespin over the years, one source said.
Adam Rubin adds that it’s not beyond the realm of possibility for him to get traded this offseason, but that the problem is other teams are well aware of Valdespin’s behavioral track record.
