Player Outlook
It took Yandy Diaz until his age 31 season, but he finally got to the 20-homer plateau and threw in a league batting title as well in his career year. The homers were a bit front loaded as 12 of his 22 homers came in the first two months of the season before he hit just two over the entire of June and July before closing with 8 more down the stretch as he chased the batting title. He hit .300 or better in every month of the season as the most atypical leadoff hitter in the American League given his size. He leads off because (points to him) he gets on base. His worst monthly OBP split was .390 in June which is how someone built like a fire hydrant was able to score 95 runs. Diaz hit the 600 plate appearance mark for the first time but did have issues throughout the season in his lower back and legs. He is now only first base eligible but was also the sixth most valuable player at the position in 2023. Diaz will not repeat, but his stock has risen.

  • Rays' Yandy Diaz: Healthy to start spring training

    Diaz is fully healthy entering spring training after battling a groin injury for most of the 2023 season, Kristie Ackert of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
