MLB ETA Risk Factor OFP Realistic Role Video
2018 High 60 55: Above-Average Regular No
Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 60 Open stance, low hands at start of swing create hole up and in, some swing-and-miss, has the hand-eye coordination to cover; compact stroke, all-fields approach; selective hitter, commands the strike zone, recognizes spin
Power 55 Plus bat speed, leveraged swing; plus raw power, drives the ball to the opposite field; will be an extra base threat at the highest level
Baserunning/Speed 40 4.30, 4.25 times to first, 5.01 on a turn, fringe-average speed at present will play a tick down as he ages and adds mass; not a factor on the base paths
Glove 50 Quick hands, good actions, smooth glove; below-average range, stiff lower-half, below-average foot speed; shows some feel around the bag on double plays, will be a steady defender at second
Arm 50 Average arm strength, accurate throws, quick release, will play to average at second

Diaz profiles as a selective hitter who has plus zone command and bat-to-ball skills. He has moderate strength in his swing and will hit for power and average at the highest level. There is a high amount of risk with the player, as he has a considerable amount of swing-and-miss to his offense-reliant game. He is not a special defender, though he shows a steady glove and he has the bat to carry him to a plus profile.
