      Astros' Aledmys Diaz: Draws first start at first base

      Aledmys Diaz will start at first base and will hit seventh Sunday against the Athletics, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.Entering the starting nine for the first time in a week, Diaz will get his first MLB innings at first base after previously seeing all of his action at the other three infield spots and left field. The Houston Astros likely won't turn to Diaz at first base often, as the regular option at the position, Yuli Gurriel, is merely receiving the day off for rest.

      Astros' Aledmys Diaz: Working at first base

      Aledmys Diaz will get a start at first base this weekend against the A's, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.He has been getting more work there recently before games, and the Houston Astros are ready to give him his first career start there this weekend. Already capable of playing the other three infield positions and left field, this will make Diaz an even more versatile utility option for Houston, although it doesn't do much for his fantasy value.

      Astros' Aledmys Diaz: Will be tested in outfield

      The Houston Astros plan to test Aledmys Diaz in both left and right field during spring training, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.Diaz was traded to Houston from Toronto in November and is seen as a potential option to replace super-utility player Marwin Gonzalez, though his outfield play remains a bit of a question mark. The Astros' infield jobs at second base, third base and shortstop are all locked down, likely leaving Diaz few opportunities at his most experienced positions. The 28-year-old could see some at-bats at designated hitter and first base as well, while any increased versatility would be a benefit given the Astros' mostly solidified lineup.

      Astros' Aledmys Diaz: Could get at-bats at DH

      Aledmys Diaz is one of several options to get at-bats as Houston's designated hitter in 2019, Brian McTaggart of the Houston Astros' official site reports.Evan Gattis received the most DH plate appearances in 2018, but he's a free agent and unlikely to return. Houston had a .750 OPS as a team in the DH spot last year, which ranked 10th in the American League, so it could be in the market for a hitter. If the Astros don't bring anyone in, they have in-house options and enough position versatility to cover the position. Diaz, who hit 18 home runs with a .756 OPS for Toronto last year, is one of them. The Astros can also rotate Michael Brantley and Yuli Gurriel.
