Giants' Isan Diaz: Traded to Giants
Diaz was traded to the Giants from the Marlins on Saturday for a player to be named or cash considerations, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Diaz remained in the Marlins' minor-league system for a little over a month after being designated for assignment in late March, but that will be the extent of his time with the club. Diaz has appeared in 145 big-league games, but he has posted just a.185 batting average and .562 OPS. He is still 25 and was once a top-100 prospect, so the Giants could give him another shot at the top level at some point.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Isan Diaz: Returns from IL
Triple-A Jacksonville activated Diaz (undisclosed) from its 7-day injured list Tuesday.
Diaz, who was outrighted to Jacksonville on March 29 after clearing waivers, made his debut for the affiliate a week later but has since been sidelined for the past two and a half weeks. After he made a pair of rehab appearances at Single-A Jupiter, Diaz looks prepared to reclaim an everyday role for Jacksonville.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Isan Diaz: Cast off 40-man roster
The Marlins designated Diaz for assignment Tuesday.
Diaz was dropped from the 40-man roster to clear a spot for outfielder/designated hitter Jorge Soler, whose three-year contract with the Marlins became official Tuesday. A prominent member of the Marlins' return haul in the January 2018 deal that sent Christian Yelich to Milwaukee, Diaz never emerged as the core contributor in the middle infield that Miami envisioned. Over 500 plate appearances with the Marlins across parts of the past three seasons, Diaz slashed .185/.275/.287 with nine home runs, 45 runs and 41 RBI while striking out 27.8 percent of the time....

Marlins' Isan Diaz: Demoted to minors
Diaz was optioned to Triple-A Jacksonville on Friday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Diaz has recently been operating as Miami's everyday third baseman, but he'll head back to the minors despite going 7-for-20 with four walks and two runs in his past eight contests. Eddy Alvarez and Joe Panik should split time at the hot corner for the Marlins.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Isan Diaz: Sitting Sunday
Diaz will be on the bench for Sunday's game in Atlanta, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Diaz had started six straight games at third base, but he's now been on the bench for two in a row. His .192/.288/.284 slash line in 265 plate appearances this season doesn't make a strong case for regular at-bats. Eddy Alvarez will make his second straight start at the hot corner Sunday....

Marlins' Isan Diaz: Takes over as top third baseman
Diaz will start at third base and bat eighth Wednesday against the Mets, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Despite going hitless in eight at-bats over his last three games, Diaz will stick in the starting nine at the hot corner for the fourth straight contest. After Brian Anderson (shoulder) was moved to the injured list Sept. 3 with an injury that will likely sideline him for the rest of the season, Diaz should have a decent amount of leash in an everyday role at third base....

Marlins' Isan Diaz: Scores three times Wednesday
Diaz went 3-for-4 with a double, a walk and three runs Wednesday in Miami's 11-9 loss to Atlanta.
Diaz has largely looked lost at the plate in 2021 for Miami, but he's currently in the midst of his most productive stretch of the season. He's recorded at least one hit in each of his last nine starts, going 12-for-34 (.353 average) with a home run, a stolen base, 10 runs and two RBI. Diaz doesn't have a clear path to an everyday lineup spot at the moment, but expect the Marlins to stagger days off for Jazz Chisholm and Brian Anderson to help give Diaz at least a handful of starts per week while he's swinging a hot bat....

Marlins' Isan Diaz: Pops fourth homer
Diaz went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's 12-2 loss to Atlanta.
He took Touki Toussaint deep in the second inning to give Miami a 2-1 lead, but the game was all Atlanta after that. Diaz has been in the lineup fairly regularly throughout August and hasn't squandered the opportunities, slashing .268/.302/.488 through 43 plate appearances with two of his four homers on the year....

Marlins' Isan Diaz: Benched in second straight
Diaz is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs.
Diaz made four consecutive starts from Monday through Friday, but he's expected to serve as a utility infielder moving forward after Jazz Chisholm was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list earlier this weekend. Over 201 plate appearances on the season, Diaz is slashing .192/.299/.291 with three home runs and one stolen base.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Isan Diaz: Playing time drying up
Diaz is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Diaz looked poised for a spike in playing time after Jazz Chisholm was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Aug. 3, but that window closed a day later when Chisholm was reinstated from the IL. Now on the bench for the third time in four games, Diaz doesn't look set to receive regular work against either right-handed or left-handed pitching for the foreseeable future.... See More ...

Marlins' Isan Diaz: Belts third homer
Diaz went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Mets.
His third-inning blast off Taijuan Walker gave the Marlins a 2-0 lead in a game during which they never trailed. Diaz hadn't gone yard since May 7 and has only three homers on the year, but he should get regular starts at second base while Jazz Chisholm (COVID-19) is sidelined and has been productive since the All-Star break, slashing .289/.372/.474 over his last 15 games....

Marlins' Isan Diaz: Back on bench
Diaz is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Padres, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Diaz will take a seat after he had picked up starts in four of the past five games, with the 25-year-old going 4-for-17 with a double, two walks and three runs scored over that stretch. While Jon Berti's (concussion) move to the 7-day injured list temporarily opened up more playing time for Diaz, Brian Anderson's (shoulder) return from the 60-day IL on Saturday will likely result in Diaz moving back into a utility role....

Marlins' Isan Diaz: Rejoins big-league club
Diaz was recalled from Triple-A Jacksonville on Friday.
Diaz was demoted to Triple-A in mid-June but will rejoin the Marlins coming out of the All-Star break. The 25-year-old is hitting .146/.286/.223 with a 29.4 percent strikeout rate in 126 plate appearances in the majors this season. He's unlikely to play a significant role with Jazz Chisholm, Jon Berti and Joe Panik healthy.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Isan Diaz: Optioned to Triple-A
Diaz was optioned to Triple-A Jacksonville on Friday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Diaz hit just .146 with two home runs, 10 RBI and six runs during his time with the major-league club, and he posted a 29.4 percent strikeout rate. He'll attempt to sort things out in the minors after Miguel Rojas (finger) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Jon Berti will likely serve as the primary third baseman going forward with Brian Anderson (shoulder) still on the shelf, while Deven Marrero could also see an uptick in playing time.... See More ...

Marlins' Isan Diaz: Gets Wednesday off
Diaz is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Diaz is one of four Marlins regulars getting a breather in the series finale; he'll be joined on the bench by Starling Marte, Adam Duvall and Jesus Aguilar. Deven Marrero, who was called up from Triple-A Jacksonville earlier Wednesday, will slot in at third base in place of Diaz, who is slashing a poor .186/.321/.233 through his first 13 games of June....

Marlins' Isan Diaz: Heads to bench
Diaz is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Atlanta, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Diaz will sit for the second time in four games, and his grasp on the everyday role at third base could be loosening amid his ongoing struggles at the plate. Through 10 games in June, Diaz has posted a .576 OPS while striking out in 28.6 percent of his plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Isan Diaz: Not in Thursday's lineup
Diaz isn't starting Thursday against the Rockies, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Diaz will get a breather after he went 5-for-18 with two doubles, two RBI, three walks and seven strikeouts in his last five games. Jon Berti will shift to the hot corner while Jose Devers starts at second base.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Isan Diaz: Out of Friday's lineup
Diaz is not in the lineup Friday against the Pirates, Joe Frisaro of ManOnSecondBaseball.com reports.
The 25-year-old started the past seven games, with the last three starts coming at third base, but he'll head to the bench after going 1-for-19 during the full period. Diaz should continue to see opportunities with Brian Anderson (shoulder) and Miguel Rojas (finger) sidelined, but the young infielder could see those chances diminish if he continues to struggle. Jose Devers will start at second base Friday while Jon Berti covers the hot corner.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Isan Diaz: Gets another turn at third base
Diaz will start at third base and bat seventh Thursday against the Pirates, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
He'll be making his third start in a row at the hot corner while Brian Anderson (shoulder) remains on the shelf. Though he lost out on a full-time role in the middle infield to Jazz Chisholm early on in the season, the injuries to Anderson and shortstop Miguel Rojas (finger) appears to have opened up an everyday role for Diaz in the short term. Diaz has recorded more walks (seven) than strikeouts (six) over his last six games, but thanks to going 1-for-16 during that stretch, he has no RBI or runs.... See More ... See Less
