Dietrich was the Rays’ second-round pick in 2010 and the Marlins acquired him in exchange for Yunel Escobar this offseason.
While not considered a top prospect, Dietrich has put up solid numbers in the minors as a second baseman/shortstop, including hitting .282 with four homers and a .913 OPS in 28 games at Double-A as a 23-year-old this season.
