Cardinals | Will be patient with Aledmys Diaz
The St. Louis Cardinals will take their time in developing Cuban SS Aledmys Diaz by having him serve as depth in the minor leagues. He's on the 40-man roster and will be optioned this spring. A solid March could allow him to start the year at Class AA Springfield.
Fantasy Tip: Diaz had to sit out a full year as MLB-mandated punishment for misrepresenting his age, so he's behind the curve to get involved heavily in St. Louis' plans this year. Jhonny Peralta's presence and four-year deal obviously complicate the 23-year-old's timetable, as well. Diaz could develop significant power for a shortstop, and keeper leaguers shouldn't hesitate to spend a farm-roster spot on him.
