The Rays will play their ninth postseason game Monday, but Diaz has cracked the lineup on only five occasions, with two starts coming versus left-handed pitchers. After missing the final month of the regular season with a hamstring injury, Diaz hasn't quite found his swing in the postseason with two hits (both singles) in 13 at-bats, though he's at least drawn eight walks while striking out only four times. Since he'll be sitting out against a right-hander (Lance McCullers) in Game 2, the righty-hitting Diaz could be ticketed for a short-side platoon role for the remainder of the Rays' postseason run.
