Dodgers | Valentin Still Considered Leading Contender for Third Base Job

The Associated Press reports Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Jose Valentin is still considered the leading contender to land the starting job at third base, even though the team signed 3B Norihiro Nakamura to a minor league contract to compete with him in spring training. "Certainly, we signed Jose Valentin with the idea that he would play third base, and I certainly still expect him to be on this club and be the leading contender," said Dodgers general manager Paul DePodesta Thursday, Feb. 3.
