Yandy Díaz has evidently reached sports maturity in Tampa Bay. His records are already considered among the best in baseball, which now has him with the third highest OBP (on-base percentage) of the season with .407.
A couple of days ago Yandy was even included in the top twenty of players hitting over .300, although now his statistics are slightly below with .294 and 83 hits. His batting average is even better his historical .275, in half a dozen seasons in the Major League. His OPS currently sits at .797.
