Reds | Jumbo Diaz recalled

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 09:51:34 -0700

Cincinnati Reds RP Jumbo Diaz was recalled from Class AAA Louisville Monday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: The Reds are currently using a committee approach to the closing role with Tony Cingrani and Ross Ohlendorf the main options, but Diaz could factor in eventually with the Reds out of contention for the second half. Diaz isn't a waiver wire priority, but keep tabs on him if you're desperate for saves in deeper leagues.

Reds | Jumbo Diaz making adjustments

Wed, 18 May 2016 16:08:30 -0700

Cincinnati Reds RP Jumbo Diaz is working on throwing his changeup softer with Class AAA Louisville to increase the difference in speed between it and his fast ball.

"The same thing happened to me last year, I didn't throw the ball very well in the first half," Diaz said. "I worked on my changeup and I threw the ball down there very well. I'm pitching the same way, I just told Teddy (Louisville pitching coach Ted Power) that I am just going to have fun and pitch the ball the way I want. And everything is working right. I was having fun, I'm comfortable and I was getting them out."

Fantasy Tip: Diaz has the potential to work his way into the closer mix. He is a speculative add in deep mixed leagues, and an arm to watch in all formats. Tony Cingrani has fared well of late with three saves in his past four opportunities, but he is a southpaw, whereas Diaz is a right-handed pitcher. This is a bullpen situation to monitor.
