The batting average has come crashing down and his power has completely halted to go along with the playing time. With that said, he was so exceptional for a stretch that you can make a case for stashing him until he comes out of it and mashes again.

Dietrich has needed just 218 plate appearances to clobber 18 home runs and is slugging .610 against righties. Yet he has also cooled down in June (.140/.319/.262), which is bad timing with the Reds welcoming back Scooter Gennett. Although an incredible story so far, Dietrich may no longer have a clear path to regular playing time against righties. It will become impossible to roster him if relegated to a timeshare within his usual platoon.
