You may want to consider running some tubing out of that port into your kettle when sparging to avoid the possibility of hot side aeration.

I've always wondered about that. Is hot side aeration an issue BEFORE the boil? Wouldn't the boil de-oxygenate the wort, thus removing any oxygen that was absorbed during the drain/sparge? I use a tube myself, just curious.

I have thought about it...typically the kettle is right up under the valve but it wasn't very photogenic

Edit: here is a BYO mr wizard article where he mentions wort splashing as a potential source of hot side aeration:

Palmer has researched this for homebrewers, and he cautions that HSA could be more of an issue before the boil than during the boil. But I think he was actually most concerned with oxygenation during the mash (particularly at lower temps).

To be safe, I think adding a bit of tubing would be worth the effort.
