Derek Dietrich

While there has been some trade talk surrounding Dietrich, I’m more interested in watching for his playing time. I wrote an article yesterday discussing this topic, and would like to see how his playing time is influenced by a possible return of Dee Gordon. Dietrich has also been hot of late, homering in two of his last three games at third base. Expect this underplayed utility man to see his field time shortened again.
