Things cooled at times for Diaz, but he still finished with a strong rookie season: ...

Cardinals Diaz and Peralta Link to Break Soon

Ever since the two joined the St. Louis Cardinals prior to the 2014 season, Jhonny Peralta and Aledmys Diaz have been linked. Their paths will almost certainly diverge in 2018, however. Where this might lead for Diaz is considered.
