Those who looked at pictures of Diaz's pecs instead of his launch angle hoped the Rays could unlock his power potential. They haven't been disappointed, as the 27-year-old has slugged .502 and pelted 12 home runs in 248 plate appearances after mustering nine in 1,099 plate appearances for Cleveland and its Triple-A affiliate over the last two years. While he continues to hit too many ground balls, his 21 barrels shows the ability to simultaneously hit hard contact and elevate. Returning strong from a hand injury with a .935 OPS in 15 games, he has proven worthy of rostering in all formats.
