Diaz will miss the rest of the 2017 season after fracturing his right hamate bone and undergoing surgery Wednesday, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. He's expected to fully recover in six-to-eight weeks.
Diaz was trudging along with a .222/.334/.376 triple slash but bolstered it with 13 home runs and nine stolen bases across 455 plate appearances for High-A Carolina. The 21-year-old's prospect luster has faded a little, but he remains an enticing long-term piece to stash in dynasty leagues. A quick recovery at the start of next season could help him get back into the prospect community's good graces.
