Diaz will start at third base and bat eighth Wednesday against the Mets, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Despite going hitless in eight at-bats over his last three games, Diaz will stick in the starting nine at the hot corner for the fourth straight contest. After Brian Anderson (shoulder) was moved to the injured list Sept. 3 with an injury that will likely sideline him for the rest of the season, Diaz should have a decent amount of leash in an everyday role at third base.
