Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 55 Setup in the box is even stance with slight crouch and slight bat waggle; Rocks back to load with small leg kick but stays balanced; Above-average bat speed with slight uppercut swing; Barrel stays in hitting zone and finds the ball; Recognizes spin; Has an approach at the plate;
Power 40 Raw power is average due to strength in frame and bat speed; In game, shows power to pull side and ability to drive the ball with authority the other way; Most will come to pull side; Will be more doubles power with 9-13 homers on an annual basis.
Baserunning/Speed 40 Quick feet with athletic strides; Shows ability to steal a bag but not a consistent threat to run; First-to-third well.
Glove 50 Quick feet and reactions lead to a solid but unspectacular package at SS; Gets to the balls he should but will be a tick short as he ages; Will necessitate a move to 2B; Will be average there with the reactions and athleticism to turn the double play.
Arm 50 Proper arm action with a quick release and accuracy; Playable arm for short but the throw from the hole is short; Will play average at 2B with plenty of strength to make the throw from up the middle.
Overall

Isan Diaz is a 19-year-old shortstop in his first year of full-season professional baseball. He has an advanced bat and approach for his age due to above average bat speed and feel to hit. He is adequate at short currently but a move to second will happen. He will be an everyday second baseman at the ML level with the bat being his carrying tool.
