Diaz is 6-for-11 (.545) with a home run, three doubles and four RBI in six spring games with the Brewers.

Diaz reached the Low-A level last year for the first time and will likely open this season with High-A Carolina, but that did not prevent the Brewers from letting him show what he can do with the big club this spring, and he's responded in impressive fashion. The Brewers can be patient with him thanks to the middle-infield depth at the top levels of their system, but he could push his way up the ranks quicker than expected if he keeps hitting like he has this spring and like he did in 2016, when he posted an .827 OPS over 135 games with Wisconsin.
