Second base prospect Jordany Valdespin's solid performance in the Arizona Fall League may be ending prematurely.

Valdespin, who was the Mets' lone representative in Saturday's AFL Rising Stars game after right-hander Brad Holt withdrew, has suffered a forearm strain. He had been hitting .355 with one homer and 11 RBIs and was 7-for-7 in steal attempts in 19 games when he was forced to leave Monday's game after two at-bats.

During the regular season, Valdespin hit a combined .272 with six homers, 41 RBIs and 17 steals in 29 attempts in 382 at-bats between Class A St. Lucie and Double-A Binghamton.
