Yandy Diaz Newsbeat

Monday, May 20, 2019

Rays’ Yandy Diaz says Yankees hit him intentionally; Daniel Robertson relieved he wasn’t hurt

“At first I thought I might have broken my wrist,’’ he said. “Of course it’s frustrating. There isn’t anything you can do about it. It happened.

Diaz said he “hopefully” will get the chance for revenge.

The Rays gave up a lot to get Yandy Diaz. He risked a lot more to get here.

It will be interesting to see what Diaz does with his opportunity.

Rays officials saw the potential for Diaz to be an impactful addition to their lineup — an “absolute beast” in the words of one — after incorporating some small adjustments they expect to produce more home runs. (More being relative as he’s hit only one in 265 big-league at-bats.)

And they paid heavily, giving up not only promising first baseman Jake Bauers but also $5 million (more than they’ll pay all but two players) to get Diaz in a three-team deal.

“We sought him,’’ manager Kevin Cash said. “We’re excited to finally have him in here.’’

The Rays are asking Diaz to work primarily at first base after spending most of his previous time at third, but otherwise are banking on him being comfortable and relaxed knowing he has a spot on the team.
