It was a longshot in the first place as Diaz could probably, and did, find a spot where he could get more consistent playing time than with the Yankees. It would have been nice though as Diaz mashes lefties. Over his career he has a very healthy .907 OPS against them.
Unfortunately the Yankees are now going to have to move on to other outfield options.
