Those who looked at pictures of Diaz's pecs instead of his launch angle hoped the Rays could unlock his power potential. They weren't disappointed, as the 27-year-old slugged .480 and pelted 14 home runs in 344 plate appearances after mustering nine in 1,099 plate appearances for Cleveland and its Triple-A affiliate over the last two years. He won't have the chance to expand on that career-high tally, as he's out for the rest of the season with a foot fracture.

Diaz has been hitting the ball hard all season with underlying metrics actually suggesting his batting average should be higher than the current .277 and his homers may spike too. He makes for a terrific pickup if you need a third baseman.
