BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 The scouting report about his bat reads: “great fielder.” In other words, Diaz's offense is lacking, but there are worse fates in pro baseball than being a glove-first shortstop, especially one who is still relatively young. Diaz would love to end up with former Indian John McDonald’s career as a light-hitting utility infielder. While he may not have the glove of McDonald, he should have a bit more bat, though still below average.
