  • Rays' Yandy Diaz: Delivers fifth homer of season

    Diaz went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 6-4 win over the Guardians.

    Diaz's fifth-inning long ball off Zach Plesac -- his fifth of the season -- held up as the difference as Tampa Bay ended a two-game losing streak. The 30-year-old, who is batting .281 in six games since the All-Star break, will start at third base and bat second in Sunday's series finale.

  • Rays' Yandy Diaz: Gets rest Thursday

    Diaz is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Orioles, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Diaz had started in each of the Rays' first six contests out of the All-Star break, so he's likely receiving a routine breather Thursday while Tampa Bay closes out its series in Baltimore with a game that begins at 12:35 p.m. ET. Isaac Paredes will fill in at third base for Diaz, who went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI in Wednesday's 6-4 win.

    Diaz drilled a solo shot off of Kris Bubic in the third inning, ending a 56-game homerless drought. He later doubled and scored a run in the sixth. The 30-year-old was in a 3-for-24 (.125) slump since his last multi-hit game July 11. Diaz improved his season slash line to .295/.409/.404 with 24 extra-base hits and 43 runs scored through 86 games.

  • Rays' Yandy Diaz: Three-RBI night

    Diaz went 1-for-3 with a three-run double and two walks in a 7-3 win over the Royals on Friday.

    Diaz came up big with the bases loaded in the fourth inning and cashed in three with a bases-clearing double off Brad Keller, who was bothered by drainage from his nose. Diaz is slashing an excellent .383/.479/.533 in July and continues to set the table for the Rays' offense as a reliable leadoff man.

  • Rays' Yandy Diaz: Ready to go for second half

    Diaz (forearm) is starting at third base and batting leadoff Friday against the Royals, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Diaz missed the Rays' final game before the All-Star break after he was hit in the forearm by a pitch Saturday, but he's locked and loaded to start the second half Friday. The 30-year-old owns a .294 average with three home runs, 26 RBI, 40 runs and a stolen base over 83 games this year.

  • Rays' Yandy Diaz: Day off Sunday

    Diaz (forearm) is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's contest against the Orioles, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Diaz was hit by a pitch in the ninth inning of Saturday's game, and although he was reported to be alright, it appears the Rays will give him a day off Sunday ahead of the All-Star break. Isaac Paredes will take over at third base and bat fifth versus the Orioles.

  • Rays' Yandy Diaz: OK after hit-by-pitch

    Diaz was hit by a pitch in the ninth inning of Saturday's game, but manager Kevin Cash said Diaz "should be OK," Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The sinker from Jorge Lopez that hit Diaz was clocked at 98.2 mph, but apparently it caught him mostly on the meat of the left forearm. Cash intimated Diaz would have been lifted had the DH spot come back around Saturday, so it's worth keeping an eye out to see if Diaz plays in Sunday's first-half finale.

  • Rays' Yandy Diaz: Stays hot Monday

    Diaz went 3-for-3 with two doubles, three runs scored and three RBI in Monday's 10-5 win over the Red Sox.

    The 30-year-old has been hitting the cover off the ball lately. Diaz has 10 multi-hit performances in his last 15 games, slashing an absurd .500/.569/.704 over that stretch with 11 doubles, eight RBI and 11 runs with a 9:4 BB:K. The lack of over-the-fence power does mute his value a little, but it's doubtful many fantasy GMs will be complaining about his current form.

  • Rays' Yandy Diaz: Drives in two runs

    Diaz went 3-for-4 with a double two RBI in Sunday's 10-5 loss to Cincinnati.

    Diaz knocked a two-run single off Nick Lodolo as part of Tampa Bay's three-run fourth inning. The 30-year-old is absolutely scorching of late; Sunday was the ninth multi-hit outing he's produced over his last 14 games. During that stretch, he's improved his season slash line from .257/.378/.333 to .299/.412/.395. Diaz is up to 20 RBI and 19 extra-base hits through 77 games.

    Diaz has recorded hits in each of the last 12 games, slashing .457/.545/.630 with eight doubles, eight runs and three RBI during that time. However, he'll get a breather while Isaac Paredes shifts to the hot corner with Josh Lowe entering the lineup in right field.

  • Rays' Yandy Diaz: Scores three runs

    Diaz went 3-for-4 with a walk and three runs scored in a 7-6 win over the Orioles on Saturday.

    Diaz reached base four times and came in to score the winning run on a Harold Ramirez sacrifice fly in the ninth inning. He has been consistently average all season long. Diaz hits for a quality batting average (.279) but hasn't shown much power or stolen base upside with just three home runs and one steal in four attempts. He could be a player for fantasy managers to keep an eye on when the Rays have favorable streaming matchups, as they did versus Kyle Bradish and the Orioles.

  • Rays' Yandy Diaz: Tallies two doubles

    Diaz went 2-for-5 with two doubles and a run scored Wednesday against the Yankees.

    Diaz led off the sixth inning with a ground-rule double and came around to score on a double by Manuel Margot. Diaz had gone nine games game without an extra-base hit prior to Wednesday's effort, though he still managed to reach base at a .353 clip in that span. That stretch has exemplified his production this season, as he has a .398 on-base percentage but is slugging just .354 across 216 plate appearances.

    Diaz went 1-for-1 with a double, three walks, a stolen base and two runs scored in Friday's 6-3 win over the White Sox.

    Diaz wasn't able to do a lot with the bat, but his continued solid plate discipline kept the line moving Friday. In his last four games, he's 5-for-11 with six walks and a hit-by-pitch. His walk rate for the season is at 16.9 percent, a strong mark even for the patient 30-year-old. Diaz sports a .271/.407/.361 slash line with three home runs, 12 RBI, 21 runs scored, four doubles and a steal through 177 plate appearances.
