The Cardinals plan to keep Aledmys Diaz at shortstop after Jhonny Peralta's (thumb) return from the disabled list.
The common thought had been that Diaz would move around to different infield positions after Peralta returns. But, while Diaz could play some second and third base, it sounds like the Cards intend to leave him at shortstop most days and move Peralta and Matt Carpenter around the diamond instead. Diaz has struggled defensively at shortstop this season but has been much better of late. "I feel like it’s going to create a fresh opportunity for us, but I also feel like given what you’re seeing out of Diaz at his age (25) you really need to see him develop at shortstop," general manager John Mozeliak said. "When you look at what he’s been able to do, seeing him hold that spot for the next five or six years is reasonable to think. We want to keep him developing and also figure out the right combination to win games. We need to have at least one player moving around. We need one of the veterans to say, ‘Hey, I’m willing.’" May 29 - 12:15 PM
