Diaz had a huge day Tuesday in his first start since news of Jhonny Peralta's injury broke, going 4-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored.

Diaz was signed out of Cuba in 2014. He missed nearly two full years of games in coming to the United States but hit well across Double-A and Triple-A last season, slashing .278/.339/.445. It's just spring training but the 25-year-old could play his way into a starting role by Opening Day with a good enough spring. Diaz has the ability to be a 15/15 guy if he can cut it as an MLB regular.
