    Utility players are a dime a dozen.

    The Bonafacio thread would disagree. If Diaz can be an above average hitter it would make him useful.

    If Diaz is an above average hitter then he's not a utility player. If he were a prospect then I would rate him a little behind Rosario. Less bat but there is a chance that he can play SS. How much would people pay Rosario if he was an int'l FA? I like Rosario but even at this point he could still bust and not make it as a starter in the majors. Do people really want to lock up for 5-7M/yr for 4-6 years that might not make it as a starter?

    Like I said before it's not my money but 30-40M guaranteed seems excessive for a prospect of his caliber (that hasn't played in well over a year - almost 2 years). If we are talking 10 to maybe 15M then it gets interesting since he is a legit prospect but not a sure thing at all.
