Latest Update Dietrich reinstated from the 15-day disabled list, and optioned to Triple-A New Orleans. Tue Aug, 26, 04:22 PM
Has pretty good pop in his bat and is capable of playing several different positions. Generally hits for a good average. Can also run a little bit.
Flaws: : Could stand to improve his plate patience and, as a result, his walk/strikeout ratio. Needs to work on his table-setting ability in order to play every day.
Dietrich will be back up once rosters expand in September. For now, he can get some extra work in the minors and hopefully improve to the point where his addition to the big league roster will be one even fantasy owners will enjoy.Analyst: Howard Bender
That he got through his first rehab game without incident is far more important than his results at the plate. Dietrich remains on track to rejoin the Marlins in early September, though he isn't really a mixed-league play unless he happens to get hot down the stretch.Analyst: Steve Pimental
The Marlins expect to have Dietrich back in the mix sometime in September as he continues to battle back from a wrist injury, With only six weeks left in the regular season, there is little wiggle room in regards to his rehab assignment, but as long as everything goes well he should be back at second base for the Marlins before season's end.

Dietrich suffered a right wrist strain on Tuesday and is expected to miss at least two weeks before rejoining the impressive Marlins. Although he is hitting just .228 with five home runs and 17 RBI through 158 at-bats, he is expected to rejoin the big league club once deemed healthy enough to return. Analyst: Matthew Beck
