Diaz was optioned to Triple-A Jacksonville on Friday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

Diaz hit just .146 with two home runs, 10 RBI and six runs during his time with the major-league club, and he posted a 29.4 percent strikeout rate. He'll attempt to sort things out in the minors after Miguel Rojas (finger) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Jon Berti will likely serve as the primary third baseman going forward with Brian Anderson (shoulder) still on the shelf, while Deven Marrero could also see an uptick in playing time.
