Aledmys Diaz (SS/3B, TOR) - Week 22 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 12% of leagues

ANALYSIS: Toronto Blue Jays infielder Aledmys Diaz busted on the scene in 2016 with 17 homers, 71 runs, and a .300 batting average in 404 at-bats. We have not seen that type of player since, but at times we can see small moments where that type of player still exists. His season numbers are not impressive, with a .258 batting average, but he does have 16 homers. The recent numbers are more interesting. In the last seven days, Diaz has three runs, one HR, and four RBI, to go with a .300 AVG.

In the second half as a whole, he still maintains that .300 batting average and is only striking out 11% of the time. Add to that, Diaz has become more of a fly ball hitter 44% in the second half as well. What is more interesting is he has a .310 ISO during that same time. Although Diaz has a week of road games, they are great matchups against Baltimore and Miami. There is only one left-handed pitcher on the schedule this week. That is in Diaz favor as he is batting .272 wit h11 homers and 32 RBI against right-handed pitchers this year. He is even batting .271 on the road against righties.
