SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Hoping to earn a job with the San Francisco Giants, infielder Wilson Valdez is with his 12th big league organization.

Freddie Sanchez and Ryan Theriot no longer are with the Giants, and the 34-year-old Valdez hopes to beat out 28-year-old Tony Abreu and 31-year-old Kensuke Tanaka for a roster spot with the World Series champions.

Valdez has played for seven major league teams. He's been traded six times, released six times and spent a year in Japan.
