The Houston Astros still have several positions to fill.

If Yordan Álvarez fills designated hitter instead of left field, Houston still needs a left fielder and first baseman. Astros’ free agent Aledmys Díaz fills both of those positions.

Not only does he fill a need where the Astros have holes, he’s also perhaps the premier utility man on the market.

Versatility makes teams go from good to great. His presence on the roster allows break and a chance to get regular reps at designated hitter should they be injured or unhealthy.
