Jen Royle: Orioles open to trading Valencia ( Traded to KC for OF David Lough)

Jen Royle of the Boston Herald reports that the Orioles are exploring options to trade Danny Valencia.

It makes sense to try to sell high on Valencia after he batted a surprising .304/.335/.553 with eight homers in 51 games for the Orioles last season. There's no word on who might be interested, but the Marlins would make a lot of sense since they're looking for a third baseman and Valencia grew up just outside Miami.

I can see this as he had a .304 BA and a .335 OBP. Even though he was really fun to watch... you have to have certain expectations going forward.

I don't think it means anything that it's Jen Royle reporting this but I figured someone might mention it.

This might mean they are optimistic about Machado's timetable.

I don't know why you bother doing this unless teams are actually actively inquiring about him. Even with that good month or so he had I doubt he'd bring much of note in a trade, I'd rather keep the guy and see if he can keep terrorizing lefties. He's part one of a rather interesting designated hitter platoon.
