Diaz was recalled from Triple-A Jacksonville on Tuesday and will start the evening's game against the Orioles at first base, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

Diaz was previously on the 7-day injured list at Jacksonville with a mild lower-back strain, but this promotion indicates that he's gotten past the issue. The 24-year-old went just 2-for-17 during his previous stints in the big leagues this season, and he's slashed just .221/.294/.514 in Triple-A. With that in mind, he's unlikely to see everyday at-bats in the immediate future, though that could change if he's able to perform well when given opportunities.
