Astros' Aledmys Diaz: Making progress
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz (groin) participated in a batting session and executed agility work Sunday at the Astros alternate training facility in Corpus Christi, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

There hasn't been much news about Diaz after he was placed on the 10-day injured list with a strained groin the second day of the season. He's one of a few roster regulars the Astros are missing. Yordan Alvarez (undisclosed) and George Springer (wrist) are also working back from injury.

Astros' Aledmys Diaz: Groin strain moderately serious
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz said Saturday that his groin strain is between Grade 1 and Grade 2, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

Diaz's left Friday's game against the Mariners with the injury and landed on the injured list Saturday. It's not exactly clear when he's expected to return, but it sounds as though he could miss a few weeks, which would represent a significant portion of the shortened season. With Yordan Alvarez (undisclosed) still weeks away from game action, the Astros will have to figure out what to do at designated hitter against lefties, which could involve some combination of Kyle Tucker, Abraham Toro or Taylor Jones.

Astros' Aledmys Diaz: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a right groin strain, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Diaz exited Friday's game after suffering a groin injury and received an examination later in the night. The issue is serious enough to land him on the 10-day injured list, although it's unclear exactly how much time he'll miss. Taylor Jones was called up in a corresponding move.

Astros' Aledmys Diaz: Injury clarified
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz's injury suffered during Friday's win over the Mariners was to his right groin, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The injury was originally considered a leg strain, so this provides clarity for fantasy players. Diaz, who started the game as the designated hitter in place of the injured Yordan Alvarez (undisclosed), was replaced by Abraham Toro.

Astros' Aledmys Diaz: Suffers leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz felt a strain in his leg during Friday's win against the Mariners, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

Diaz went 1-for-2 with a run in Friday's win, but he was replaced late in the game by Abraham Toro. Manager Dusty Baker revealed after the game that Diaz is being examined Friday night for a leg strain that he felt during the game. Whether the issue impacts the 29-year-old's availability going forward remains to be seen.

Astros' Aledmys Diaz: In Opening Day Lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz will bat eighth and serve as the designated hitter in Friday's Opening Day game against the Mariners, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

There had been speculation that Diaz would be the team's primary designated hitter against lefties early in the year, and that's been proven true in this one with Marco Gonzales on the hill for Seattle. Yordan Alvarez was cleared to begin baseball activities Friday after missing the entirety of summer camp for undisclosed reasons, however, so Diaz's claim to even part of the DH role likely won't last too long.

Astros' Aledmys Diaz: Could start against lefties
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz could be the Astros' primary designated hitter against lefties at the start of the season, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

The spot was expected to belong to Yordan Alvarez, but he's still yet to arrive at camp for undisclosed reasons and has been placed on the injured list. That could open up starts for Kyle Tucker against righties, either as a designated hitter or in left field, giving veteran Michael Brantley the chance to rest his legs. As a right-handed hitter, Diaz makes more sense for the role against southpaws, though it's worth noting that he has some pretty significant reverse splits over the course of his four-year career, posting an 89 wRC+ with the platoon advantage and a 117 wRC+ without it. The Astros will reveal their plans for the job on Opening Day, as they'll face lefty Marco Gonzales.

Astros' Aledmys Diaz: Working out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz (shoulder) is on the field for team workouts Sunday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

The 29-year-old was absent from workouts the past two days due to shoulder soreness that cropped up from sleeping on his shoulder wrong, but his quick return confirms it to be a minor issue. Diaz will be the primary reserve option across all four infield spots for the Astros in 2020.

Astros' Aledmys Diaz: Experiencing shoulder soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz was held out of workouts Friday and Saturday with shoulder soreness, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Manager Dusty Baker said Saturday that Diaz slept on his shoulder wrong, which led to his absence from workouts for several days. However, the 29-year-old is expected to resume activities within the coming days. Diaz will be the primary backup at all four infield positions if he can remain healthy heading into the regular season.

Astros' Aledmys Diaz: Returns as utility man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz batted .167 (4-for-24) with three extra-base hits, three RBI, three runs scored and was hit by two pitches over 11 spring games.

Diaz returns to Houston as the team's utility infielder after he was limited to 69 games due to injuries in 2019. If healthy, Diaz will be the primary backup at all four infield positions and can play left field if needed. He will also be the leading choice for a pinch hitter from the right side of the plate.

Astros' Aledmys Diaz: Wins arbitration case
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz will make $2.6 million this season after winning his arbitration case, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

Diaz struggled to find a rhythm during his first season in Houston because of different trips to the injured list due to hamstring tightness and dizziness spells. The 29-year-old finished the year hitting .271/.356/.467 with 40 RBI and 36 runs scored throughout 247 plate appearances. Diaz is expected to open the season where he left off, namely, as a utility infielder who is a valuable pinch-hit option due to superior plate discipline that led to him drawing 26 walks while striking out just 28 times last season.

Astros' Aledmys Diaz: Could start Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz could earn a start against Yankees lefty James Paxton in the ALCS, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

Diaz didn't start any of the five games in the ALDS against the Rays but received three plate appearances off the bench, going 0-for-3 with two strikeouts. He'd likely start in left field if he's in the lineup, pushing Michael Brantley to right and Josh Reddick to the bench. The Yankees haven't announced their rotation plans yet, but Paxton started the first game of the ALDS and is likely to do so again in the ALCS.

Astros' Aledmys Diaz: Fills in for Correa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz started at third base and went 1-for-2 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 3-0 win over Seattle.

Diaz was a late addition to the lineup after the Astros scratched shortstop Carlos Correa with what was described as lower-back tightness. Alex Bregman moved to short while Diaz took Bregman's usual spot at third base. Houston manager AJ Hinch downplayed Correa's injury, but it's likely Diaz will be a regular in the starting lineup over the final week of the season.

Astros' Aledmys Diaz: Drives in three runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz went 3-for-4 with a homer, three RBI and three runs scored in Sunday's 13-5 win over the Angels.

Diaz's three-run homer in the sixth inning was his eighth of the season and first since Aug. 2. The 29-year-old infielder owns a .794 OPS as a strong depth option for Houston.

September 21, 2019 08:36 AM
Astros' Aledmys Diaz: Fills in for Gurriel
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz started at first base for Yuli Gurriel (illness) and went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Friday's 6-4 win over the Angels.

Gurriel was a late scratch from the lineup due to a stomach illness, paving the way for Diaz to make his 20th start at first base. Diaz is slashing .259/.332/.430 over 64 games during what has been an injury-marred season.

Astros' Aledmys Diaz: Reaches base four times in blowout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz went 2-for-4 with a double, two walks, two RBI and a run Sunday in the Astros' 21-1 win over the Mariners.

Diaz was one of seven Astros to produce multiple hits and contributed one of the team's franchise-record 11 two-baggers on the afternoon. The 29-year-old drew a second straight start at first base in the series finale, but he'll likely shift over to the hot corner within the next few days since Yuli Gurriel (hamstring) isn't expected to miss much more time.

Astros' Aledmys Diaz: Will fill in at first base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz started at first base for a second straight game and went 1-for-2 with two walks in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Mariners.

Diaz will fill in for the injured Yuli Gurriel, who suffered a hamstring injury Thursday and will be out through at least Sunday. Diaz is expected to be the primary fill-in while Gurriel recovers.

September 2, 2019 08:04 AM
Astros' Aledmys Diaz: Fills in for injured Gurrriel
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz started at first base in place of the injured Yuli Gurriel (elbow) and went 1-for-3 with a double in Sunday's 2-0 win over the Blue Jays.

Diaz was slated to start at third base but shifted across the diamond when Gurriel became a late scratch. This was his third start in the six games since Diaz was activated off the injured list last week.

August 31, 2019 11:48 AM
Astros' Aledmys Diaz: Starts at third base Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz started at third base and went 1-for-3 with an RBI in Friday's 7-4 win over Toronto.

Diaz was activated off the injured list Tuesday and has started two of the four games since. Until shortstop Carlos Correa (back) returns, Diaz and Abraham Toro should split time at third base while Alex Bregman fills in at shortstop.

August 27, 2019 06:52 PM
Astros' Aledmys Diaz: Reinstated from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz (head) was activated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Myles Straw was optioned down to clear room for Diaz, who ended up missing the minimum after being briefly hospitalized for dizziness and lightheadedness. Diaz will not immediately slot into the lineup, but with Carlos Correa (back) on the injured list, Diaz will probably be in line for three-to-four starts per week.
