From Paul Hoynes:
I’m happy for the success Diaz and Urshela have had this year. They’ve worked hard to attain it. But if you’re saying the Indians hitting coaches didn’t work with Diaz and Urshela, you’d be wrong.
They constantly worked with Diaz to try to lift the ball. At least once they sent him to the minors to work exclusively on that. Urshela could always play defense, but he was aggressive at the plate and swung and missed a lot.
Playing time was an issue as well. Who are you going to play at third – Jose Ramirez, Diaz or Urshela? Who are you going to play at first -- Carlos Santana, Edwin Encarnacion or Diaz?
