Diaz went 1-for-2 with an RBI on a sacrifice foul ball, a walk and a run in a win over the Orioles on Tuesday.

After a hot start to the season, Diaz's bat has cooled off considerably. The 27-year-old is just 2-for-16 over the last five games, but his sharp eye at the plate has helped keep him on the bases (six walks over that span). Diaz sports an impressive .373 on-base percentage over his first 67 plate appearances, a figure that could be mostly sustained over the long term if his body of work in past various minor- and major-league stops is any indication.
