It's called "options". It's just that simple.
If you would read the rest of that paragraph, you would understand why I do not have a problem with Reimold replacing Valencia. It's completely reasonable to have one player without options in the majors, that MIGHT not be as VALUABLE as a players with options in the minors. What I have a problem with, is that Reimold is replacing Valencia, while we have three second basemen on the roster.
