2018-11-29 23:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of career do you project for Yusniel Diaz?
(martin r from Annapolis )
I've long been a fan, wrote up his High-A adjustments in some depth a while back, and nothing's really changed in the profile since: solid all-around player, projects as a dependable regular, and particularly if you buy that there's some latent over-the-fence power to come it's a higher-likelihood 55 OFP.

2018-07-30 23:00:00 (link to chat)If anyone, who's the next Gleyber Torres coming up through the minor leagues? i.e., the prospect underrated by most due to purported lack of power?
(Clint from Saugahatchee)
I dunno if you can really make a case that Gleyber was ever really underrated? We were "conservative" on him last year and had him 15th overall, and then we were "bullish" on him heading into this year as the #3 prospect in baseball. He's been pretty universally regarded as an elite dude for a while now, though, regardless of power. But I guess Willy Adames might count for that kind of vein if you're looking for another MLB-ready six-spotter a step or three behind that level? Yusniel Diaz maybe? (Wilson Karaman)
2018-07-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)How do you feel about Yusniel Diaz, he gonna flirt with top 10 status before he graduates? What about Morejon? Only a few were high on him last year, industry seems to be coming to consensus that the few were right.
(Tony from Right Where I Want To Be)
There was support for both of them to be a little higher, and both have the underlying talent to get to the top ten with continuing health and consistency, sure. (Jarrett Seidler)
2017-09-18 23:00:00 (link to chat)For a keeper league, I have the option of retaining Y.Diaz for 2 years and R.Quinn for 3 years or can release them to draft new prospects with four year contracts. 160 prospects are owned in the league. Is either worth hanging onto?
(scottski45 from Detroit)
Yusnil Diaz? Yandy? I'd drop Yandy unless it's an OBP league with, like, a bunch of weight to the OBP. I'd definitely hang onto Yusniel Diaz if that's who you mean, though the 2-year window for control is problematic. You should be able to coax some contribution out of him by 2019, though. I might look to package him in a deal given the unfortunate limitation of the contract there. He should certainly be owned, though. Quinn's tough too - the 3-year window's nice, but it's hard to trust him to stay on the field enough for it to matter at this point. Depending on the draft pool you're looking at I might cut bait there and look for something else.

Keith Hudson's one of my favorite Jamaican producers, and this tune just...mmmph.

2016-08-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)I missed out on or traded numerous prospects in my NL-only keeper league. Who are some under the radar guys (it's a 10-team league, large reserve list)? They need to have an ETA of 2018 at the latest as the three year clock starts running on them as soon as they are drafted.
(johnklein from east coast)
This is a tough question. Josh Hader is worth rostering in keeper leagues, despite the risky profile. I'm not sure what qualifies for "under-the-radar" in a 10-team league (as it depends on the size of the reserve list), but guys like Forrest Wall, Yusniel Diaz, Cody Ponce, and Jack Flaherty are guys I like. (J.P. Breen)
2016-02-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on the recent Cuban imports? (Eddy Julio, Yusniel Diaz, Yasiel Sierra)
(Frau from Boston via Orlando)
They all sound great! (I really don't have a whole lot of feel here. Ask the prospect team, ask Bret Sayre. After three months playing Stateside, they'll start to separate for me. Can't really process them without that much.) (Matthew Trueblood)
2016-03-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Chris, With Yusniel Diaz's lack of power, is that due to his physique or his swing? Is it possible for him to add power down the road?
(cflanders from BC)
It's a little bit of both. He's not bereft of strength, but this is not a bopper profile by any stretch of the imagination. The swing path also doesn't have much loft, so expecting more than a handful of homers is expecting too much, in my opinion. (Christopher Crawford)
2016-01-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Now that Eddy Julio and Yusniel Diaz's names have both been mentioned, I have to ask. How do you compare the two? I imagine these guys will be closely tied for awhile and I've been anxiously waiting for the CHC and LAD list to see BP's take.
(Ryan from Prospect Heaven)
EJM has more raw tools, compared to Diaz's more polished skillset. Diaz has a pretty good floor for a teenager, in that respect. (Top 101 Chat with Craig Goldstein)
2016-02-03 20:00:00 (link to chat)Greg, thanks for doing this chat! My question: Name five prospects currently not in the BP top 50 who have a chance to land there by mid-season. Basically, what 5 prospects do you see rising their stock substantially this year?
(Bill Clinton from Las Vegas)
Just drawing from the 101 here - Clint Frazier, Francis Martes, Harold Ramirez, Yusniel Diaz, Franklyn Kilome, (Greg Wellemeyer)
