Name: Isan Xavier Diaz
Born: May 27, 1996 in Bayamon, Puerto Rico
High School: Springfield (Mass.) HS
Ht.: 5'10" / Wt.: 185 lbs

Diaz, who was born in Puerto Rico and moved to the U.S. when he was 4, has drawn comparisons to former Puerto Rican big leaguer Jose Vidro as a 5-foot-11 lefthanded hitter with a chance to hit. Diaz has evident bat speed, a fluid stroke and makes consistent contact. At 5-foot-11, 180 pounds he has a fairly strong build, especially in his lower half, and could produce double-digit home runs with a steady diet of doubles. A high school shortstop, Diaz has smooth actions, athleticism and tremendous body control, but he fits better at second base because he has a below-average arm. His arm is loose and he can throw from different angles, and he could be an above-average defender at second, though he is a below-average runner.
