January 17, 2023
Diaz cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk by the Orioles on Tuesday, Andy Kostka of The Baltimore Banner reports.
ANALYSIS
Diaz's outright assignment marks the 10th transaction he's been involved in this offseason. Finally, though, he can stay put within an organization, at least for now. The 26-year-old will likely be in major-league camp for the Orioles this spring as a non-roster invitee.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2020
2017
Diaz spent most of last season at the Marlins' alternate training site, but he did see a three-week stint in the majors, during which he slashed .154/.195/.205 over 41 plate appearances. The big first baseman hit for very little power (.051 ISO) and struck out too often (29.3 K%), belying his expected strengths at the plate. Diaz possesses substantial raw power, which he used to belt 27 homers over two levels in 2019. He has never taken a lot of walks but has demonstrated a good eye at the plate, consistently logging contact rates in the low-80s and strikeout rates in the mid-to-high teens above rookie ball. The lefty hitter will likely never contend for a batting title or home-run crown, but he could emerge as a solid run producer in the big leagues. Diaz has a chance to be Miami's first baseman of the future, and he may get the opportunity to stake his claim for the position at some point in 2021.
The Marlins sent three pitchers, most notably Sergio Romo, to the Twins for Diaz, who now profiles as their first baseman of the future. He needed to be added to the 40-man roster this offseason and was a spare piece for the Twins, but Diaz has pedigree ($1.4 million bonus on July 2, 2013), plus raw power and struck out at a 19.1% clip at Double-A. He is also an above-average defender at first base. A .188 BABIP after the trade dragged down his numbers, but he upped his walk rate to 8.5%, which is easily his best mark above rookie ball. A rare first baseman who is better in batting average leagues than OBP leagues, Diaz probably won't ever finish as a top-10 fantasy first baseman, but the hope is that he has a handful of years as a top-20 option at the position. He will open the year at Triple-A and could earn his big-league debut this summer.
Diaz was signed for $1.4 million as a 17-year-old out of the Dominican Republic. He didn't show much in 2015 as an 18-year-old in rookie ball (.693 OPS), but he improved significantly in the more advanced Appalachian League. He hit .310 with nine home runs and a .928 OPS in 46 games. At 6-foot-3 and over 200 pounds, it's thought he could develop above-average power. He's someone to watch for a potential breakout in his first full-season league this year.
