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.
