Profile: Derek Dietrich saw significant playing time for the first time in his MLB career in 2016, and he was pretty effective.  His .279/.374/.425 triple slash carried him to a 2.0-win season in just over 400 plate appearances.  Unfortunately for Dietrich, the Marlins are deep in talent in the infield, and the trio of Dee Gordon, Adeiny Hechavarria, and Martin Prado will likely prevent Dietrich from reaching 400 plate appearances again next season.  Like his teammate Prado, Dietrich is a more useful player in reality than in fantasy.  His biggest strength is his plate discipline.  He has a 7.1 percent career walk rate—partially fueled by his knack for being hit by pitches—but he would offer little in the way of counting stats even if he landed a full-time job.  Meanwhile, Dietrich does not have the defensive ability to become a super utility player in the image of Ben Zobrist or Javier Baez.  From a fantasy perspective, Dietrich really only matters in his spot starts against right-handed pitchers, against whom he’s been 20 percent more effective than the MLB average in his career compared to 36 percent less effective against lefties.  Even in those situations, expect more in the way of gap power than home runs.  (Scott Spratt)

The Quick Opinion: Dietrich enjoyed a bit of a breakout season in 2016, slashing .279/.374/.425 in his first shot at more regular playing time.  However, you should not expect a repeat performance as the Marlins quality depth in the infield will likely return Dietrich to more of a utility role in 2017.
