RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Diaz was signed last year after defecting from Cuba where he hit .308/.401/.444 across five seasons in Cuba's Serie Nacional. He battled injuries for much of the season, which was no surprise since he had not played any organized baseball for over a year after defecting. Diaz still managed to put up some fairly impressive numbers for Double-A Springfield posting a .291/.311/.453 line. He will probably spend the majority of 2015 in Triple-A and at age 24 is still young enough that he holds some promise. Right now he doesn't project to be much more than a marginal MLB player if he can make it that far, and with Jhonny Peralta coming off a very good season in 2014 it's unlikely the Cardinals will need Diaz to contribute in St. Louis any time soon.

2014

Diaz was a shortstop with a well-rounded skill set in Cuba's professional league, and could quickly be in the majors after signing. That event will be delayed; he was barred from signing with an MLB team until Feb. 19, 2014 for presenting a false date of birth when he applied to become a free agent after defecting. Diaz hit .315/.404/.500 with 12 home runs in 270 at-bats during the 2011-12 season before he defected, according to CBS Sports. It's not clear if his glove is strong enough to stick at shortstop, so he may need to move to second base.

2013

Diaz is a Cuban defector who played for Cuba in the 2010 Pan-American games. He's seen as nearly ready for the majors, but it's not clear how his bat will translate to MLB play.
