Prospect Spotlight

Diaz signed for $15.5 million this past offseason out of Cuba, and while he is raw, it’s easy to see the tools that have Dodgers so high on this 19-year-old. He showed some lighting in the hands when he turned on a middle 90’s fastball at his eyes for a homer to left field. His lanky, wirey frame has room to fill out a bit and he should get a lot stronger. There isn’t much of an approach at the plate right now, but he has great actions and the ingredients are there. Look for him to spend most of the season with Rancho. (Read more on his recent hot streak in Top Performers) — Dave DeFreitas
