Has Yandy Diaz finally arrived?

An in-depth look at Yandy Diaz’s recent string of fly balls. The second act of the Yandy Diaz Experience debuted last week, and it's certainly less depressing than part one.

How steep can Yandy Diaz's launch angle of repose become?

We finally saw Yandy hit some balls into the air. It was glorious. I appreciate your willingness to come in on a Saturday. Our usual meetings occur Friday in the early afternoon. For one, I did not expect that I might be writing another Yandy Watch this week. That is not to say that I have not kept the faith, but I am a realist, my friends. I also recognize your restraint. You...

The Yandy Diaz Project Is One to Follow

Yandy Diaz was already interesting before the 2017 season began. His combination of offensive and defensive skills compelled Carson Cistulli to include him often as a member of the Fringe Five, a group that’s building quite a track record. He became more interesting early this season, however, when he made the Indians’ 25-man roster and filled in at third base (while Jose Ramirez...

Cleveland Indians Infielder Yandy Diaz Is the Most Jacked Player in Baseball

The Cleveland Indians will have some new muscle in their lineup to start the 2017 season. Yandy Diaz, who batted .325 in 95 games at Triple-A Columbus last season, made the big-league roster out of camp and is expected to garner substantial playing time at third base during the early going as Jose Ramirez has shifted to second in place of the injured Jason Kipnis, who is expected...

Yandy Diaz is our No. 4 Cleveland Indians prospect. Who should be No. 5?

Diaz might be the first Tribe prospect we see at the show in 2017 Perhaps one of the biggest surprises in the voting thus far, Cuban prospect Yandy Diaz beat out slugger Bobby Bradley as well as former first round picks Brady Aiken and Will Benson to earn the LGT #4 prospect ranking.

Could Yandy Diaz Be a Future Solution at Third Base?

Coming into the season, the name Yandy Diaz was not one that anyone had really heard much about. In the league for just one season, he hadn’t quite made a name for himself just yet. That might not be the case anymore, as Diaz has worked his way up the ladder and is now a legitimate option for the Indians, possibly sooner rather than later. Diaz was signed by the Indians prior to...

It’s Time to Start Learning About Yandy Diaz

The Indians may have something special brewing at third base in Akron. Third base may be one of the shallowest positions through the Indians minor league system. They currently have Giovanny Urshela manning the hot corner, with Lonnie Chisenhall also able to fill that role, as he has been there on and off for the last five seasons. Aside from the two of them, there are bunch of guys...
