Diaz went 3-for-4 with a double, a walk and three runs Wednesday in Miami's 11-9 loss to Atlanta.

Diaz has largely looked lost at the plate in 2021 for Miami, but he's currently in the midst of his most productive stretch of the season. He's recorded at least one hit in each of his last nine starts, going 12-for-34 (.353 average) with a home run, a stolen base, 10 runs and two RBI. Diaz doesn't have a clear path to an everyday lineup spot at the moment, but expect the Marlins to stagger days off for Jazz Chisholm and Brian Anderson to help give Diaz at least a handful of starts per week while he's swinging a hot bat.
