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.
Acquired in late 2013, Diaz has made one hell of an impression in a short amount of time, beating the brakes off the ball at every level he's played while showcasing a tremendous eye at the plate. He was even promoted all the way to Triple-A by the end of his second full season in the system.
Diaz had one hell of a 2016 campaign, quickly returning to Triple-A where he showcased his diversity, playing games in left field, right field, center field as well as both second and third base. He was only a few plate appearances shy of qualifying for the International League batting crown, which he would have won with his .325 average.
The 25-year old has a major league-ready approach to hitting, walking nearly as much as he struck out in 2016 and he carried those numbers into a downright nasty stint in the Venezuelan League, where he just finished the regular season with an insane .371/.461/.510 slash compiled over 40 games.
The only negative in regards to Diaz is a lack of power, although his ISO has been improving year-to-year. It's highly possible Diaz breaks camp with the Indians as their super utility player this season.
