    Miguel Rojas is Miami’s unofficial captain. Also, moving him would shift Jazz Chisholm Jr. to shortstop where he’s been almost as inconsistent as Torres. Díaz is movable for the right price, but BTV is currently undervaluing him.

    Marlins wouldn’t do this.

    • John Bitzer

      Curious why you think Diaz is undervalued by our model? He’s been below replacement level in the bigs so far; plays a position that teams don’t tend to give up much for; has only one option year left after this one; and is midway through losing his prospect status. Yes, we know he’s still young; future improvement is already baked in.

      What’s the case for a higher value?

      • Ely Sussman

        Firstly, his defense. Evaluators who are familiar with his background would agree he’s already among the best fielders at that position in the majors. He also got his feet wet in LF this summer at Triple-A, just to add a bit of versatility.

        I don’t see how there can be any weight applied to his MLB hitting stats considering both the sample size and how erratically the Marlins have used him. They only began treating him as an everyday starter in this latest stint beginning Sept. 8 (fwiw, his production since then has been more in line with expectations).

        • John Bitzer

          We’ll keep an eye on him. If he continues to perform well the rest of the season, his value will go up in our next update.
