Jordan Diaz

23-Year-Old Second Baseman2B
Oakland Athletics
2024 Fantasy Outlook
Diaz was called up by Oakland in mid-April and had a .656 OPS in 24 games before being demoted a month later, and he then rejoined the A's in late June. The 23-year-old didn't perform any better the rest of the way with a .222/.281/.350 slash line over 66 contests. He was a decent defender at second base but saw more of his time at the hot corner (38 appearances), where he struggled with negative-11 DRS. Diaz had an .857 OPS at Triple-A during his monthlong stint on the farm and has little else to prove in the minors, but his .225 xBA and .369 xSLG don't paint a rosy picture. He'll likely need to show some improvements early in 2024 in order to retain a spot on the big-league roster given his 79 wRC+ through 105 MLB games. Read Past Outlooks

2023 Fantasy Outlook
In most organizations, a player with Diaz's limited physical tools and defensive utility would be an afterthought in fantasy. However, as one of the best pure hitters in an Oakland system that is severely lacking in young big-league-ready position players, he is worth taking a look at. It's kind of a Jose Miranda type of profile. Diaz got more starts at designated hitter than anywhere else in the minors last year while playing more at the keystone in the majors, which is where he will be eligible in fantasy entering the year. He hit .326/.366/.515 with a 14.4 K% and 5.3 BB% as a 21-year-old across Double-A and Triple-A. Diaz's Triple-A output is greatly helped by the hitter-friendly conditions of the Pacific Coast League, but his contact skill immediately translated in the majors (13.7 K%). Obviously he is better in AVG leagues than OBP leagues, and there is no speed to speak of, but Diaz should play a lot for the A's this season as long as he hits for a modicum of power.
