  • Rays' Yandy Diaz: Steps out of lineup

    Diaz is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Pirates, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

  • 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.

  • Rays' Yandy Diaz: On base four times in win

    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.

  • Rays' Yandy Diaz: Rejoins lineup

    Diaz (shoulder) will start at third base and bat third in Wednesday's game against the Marlins, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    As manager Kevin Cash predicted would be the case, Diaz returns to the lineup Wednesday after a strained left shoulder kept him on the bench for the past two games. With Diaz back in action at third base, Taylor Walls will retreat to the bench for the series finale.

  • Rays' Yandy Diaz: Not starting Tuesday

    Diaz (shoulder) is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Marlins, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Tampa Bay will go with Ji-Man Choi and Isaac Paredes as its starters at the corner-infield spots in the series opener while Diaz gets more time off to heal up from his strained left shoulder. Before sitting out Sunday's 7-6 loss to the Orioles with the injury, Diaz had gone 7-for-17 with three runs scored and an RBI over his previous four games. Diaz doesn't look like a candidate to go on the 10-day injured list, as manager Kevin Cash said the 30-year-old is expected to re-enter the lineup Wednesday, according to Topkin.

  • Rays' Yandy Diaz: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Diaz (shoulder) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Diaz exited Saturday's contest with a strained left shoulder and will be held out of the lineup for the series finale. It's unclear whether he will require a stint on the injured list, but the team will have Monday's scheduled off day to evaluate him before the 30-year-old misses additional time. Ji-Man Choi will take over at first base while Harold Ramirez bats cleanup as the designated hitter Sunday.

    Diaz (illness) is starting Saturday against the Blue Jays, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

  • Rays' Yandy Diaz: Scratched from Friday's lineup

    Diaz was scratched from Friday's lineup against the Blue Jays due to an illness, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Diaz's illness isn't believed to be COVID-19-related, but he'll be out of the lineup for at least one game. Whether he's available off the bench remains to be seen, but Taylor Walls will be added to the lineup at third base.

  • Rays' Yandy Diaz: On bench Sunday

    Diaz is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners.

    The freshly activated Ji-Man Choi (elbow) will step in at first base for Diaz, who had drawn starts at the position in each of the Rays' last six games. Though Choi is back in the fold, Diaz is expected to play on a near-everyday basis while bouncing between the two corner-infield spots. Taylor Walls appears to be at greater risk of losing out on regular playing time following Choi's return.

  • Rays' Yandy Diaz: Slugs leadoff homer

    Diaz went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Monday's 6-1 win over the A's.

    Diaz was moved up to the leadoff spot for the first time in over two weeks Monday, and the decision immediately paid off as he slugged a 407-foot homer to begin the contest. He later singled to register his third multi-hit performance over his past four games. Diaz has been one of Tampa Bay's top hitters this season, slashing .306/.442/.435 with two homers, five RBI and 10 runs over 77 plate appearances.

  • Rays' Yandy Diaz: On bench Monday

    Diaz isn't starting Monday's game against Oakland, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Diaz started in six straight games to close out April, and he went 6-for-17 with a homer, three runs, two RBI and seven walks during that time. However, he'll now be out of the lineup for a second consecutive matchup while Taylor Walls starts at the hot corner and bats eighth.

  • Rays' Yandy Diaz: Takes seat Sunday

    Diaz is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins.

    Diaz looks to be getting a routine maintenance day after starting each of the past six games while going 6-for-17 with a home run, seven walks and three runs over that stretch. Harold Ramirez will fill in at first base in the series finale against Minnesota, but Diaz should have a clear path to a full-time role at either corner-infield spot for at least the next week after Ji-Man Choi (elbow) was placed on the injured list Sunday.

  • Rays' Yandy Diaz: Leaves yard for first time in 2022

    Diaz went 1-for-2 with a solo home run, a walk and an additional run in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Red Sox.

    Fresh off being reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list, Diaz put the finishing touches on Sunday's win with the seventh-inning long ball off lefty Jake Diekman. The home run was the first of the season for Diaz, who has produced only three extra-base hits through 51 plate appearances.

  • Rays' Yandy Diaz: Returns from injured list

    Diaz (illness) was activated from the COVID-19 injured list Sunday. He'll start at first base and bat cleanup in the Rays' series finale with the Red Sox, according to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times.

    Diaz landed on the COVID-19 IL on Saturday but will rejoin the active roster after missing only one game. The 30-year is still in search of his first home run of 2022 and has a .275/.383/.325 slash line with two doubles, two RBI and five runs in 12 games.
