Talkin’ lineup changes with Yandy Diaz, Jason Kipnis | cleveland.com

Thoughts about Kipnis heading to left field and Diaz to third base. From Terry Pluto:

Kipnis to left field opens up third base for Yandy Diaz. Finally, the Indians seem prepared to give him a chance to be a regular. Kipnis to left, Diaz to third is not being discussed publicly by the Tribe. But I do know it’s under serious consideration.

Since the 2017 All-Star break, Diaz is batting .312 (62-for-201) with 1 HR, 15 RBI and a .797 OPS. He is respectable at third base. The 27-year-old Diaz is a career .319 hitter (.848 OPS) in Class AAA. Just play him.
