Rays' Yandy Diaz: Leaves yard again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz went 2-for-4 with a solo home run during a loss to the Yankees in the first game of a doubleheader Thursday.

The Cuban slugger slugged the second of back-to-back homers off Yankees starter Domingo German in the first inning, a 341-foot laser that also qualified as Diaz's third homer in the previous four games. Diaz also has five multi-hit efforts over the last eight games overall, pushing his season line to a solid .279/.349/.500.

Rays' Yandy Diaz: Hits 13th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double and two RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Yankees.

Diaz's solo home run during the fourth inning gave the Rays a 2-1 lead and he brought home another run with his double in the sixth, but the bullpen was unable to hold the lead. The 27-year-old is 9-for-26 (.346 average) with three doubles and two home runs in his last six games.

Rays' Yandy Diaz: On bench for series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Diaz started both games of Saturday's doubleheader, going 2-for-8 with a solo home run, double, walk and two runs. He'll likely just be getting a maintenance day in the series finale as Mike Brosseau fills in for him at the hot corner.

Rays' Yandy Diaz: Scores thrice in second-half opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz went 2-for-6 with an RBI single and three runs in a win over the Orioles on Friday.

Diaz helped the Rays get off to a hot start by contributing a timely single during a seven-run first inning. The talented 27-year-old sandwiched a pair of two-hit efforts around the All-Star break and is 12-for-38 (.316) with six doubles, four walks and 12 runs since June 29, a 10-game span.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rays' Yandy Diaz: Slaps three doubles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz went 3-for-4 with three doubles and three runs scored in Sunday's 6-2 win over Texas.

Diaz was a nightmare for Texas pitching all afternoon. It was the first time this season he's collected three extra-base hits in one contest. The solid day puts his OPS at .854 alongside 28 extra-base knocks and 40 runs scored on the year.

Rays' Yandy Diaz: Breaks through in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz went 2-for-4 with a double and a run in a win over the Rangers on Saturday.

Diaz snapped out of an 0-for-11 funk with the two-hit day, his first multi-hit effort since the final game before he went on the injured list. Despite the aforementioned brief slump he endured over his first two games back, Diaz is hitting .316 overall in June, raising his average 20 points to .276 since the calendar flipped.

Rays' Yandy Diaz: Hitless since return from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz, who went 0-for-4 in a loss to the Rangers on Friday, is 0-for-11 with an RBI in his first two games since returning from a hamstring injury.

Diaz was activated from the 10-day injured list prior to Thursday's game against the Twins and immediately gave his hamstring quite the test by playing all 18 innings of the marathon win. However, the infielder is apparently still trying to get his timing at the plate back after missing nine contests, and he'll look to return to the excellent form he was displaying prior to his injury when the Rays take the field against the Rangers again Saturday.

Rays' Yandy Diaz: In lineup after activation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day injured list and will start at third base and bat cleanup Thursday against the Twins, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

The Rays optioned reliever Hunter Wood to Triple-A Durham in a corresponding move, clearing the way for Diaz to rejoin the roster after a week-and-a-half-long stay on the IL. Now that he's healthy again, Diaz -- who owns an .865 OPS over 248 plate appearances this season -- should reclaim an everyday gig at either corner-infield spot, bumping Joey Wendle back into a utility role as a result.

Rays' Yandy Diaz: Trending towards Thursday return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Kevin Cash said there is a "very good chance" Diaz (hamstring) returns from the injured list Thursday, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Diaz has been sidelined since June 16 with a hamstring injury, but it sounds like he's on track to return from the injured list when first eligible Thursday. Prior to landing on the shelf, the third baseman slashed .286/.363/.502 with 11 home runs and a stolen base in 56 games.

Rays' Yandy Diaz: Getting close to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz (hamstring) has been able to work back up to doing running and sprinting and is on track to return from the injured list when first eligible Thursday, John Hickey of MLB.com reports.

Diaz's previously balky hamstring has been tolerating his gradual increase in activity well, so he and the team are optimistic about a return in the minimum time. Diaz actually began missing games three days prior to his official placement on the IL, which short-circuited what was shaping up as a highly productive month of June.

Rays' Yandy Diaz: Lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays placed Diaz (hamstring) on the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Diaz had shown limited improvement in his recovery from a right hamstring injury since he last played Sunday, prompting the Rays to shut him down for at least another week. According to Tolentino, the third baseman will stay with the team to rehab, and the hope is that he'll be ready to return next week in Minnesota after a minimum stay on the shelf. Tampa Bay recalled Daniel Robertson from Triple-A Durham to restore some depth in the infield, but Joey Wendle appears to be the likelier candidate to assume Diaz's spot in the everyday lineup.

Rays' Yandy Diaz: Nursing hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz isn't starting Tuesday's game against the Yankees due to a hamstring issue, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The Rays are holding Diaz out for the second straight day as a precaution, and they're optimistic that he won't require a trip to the injured list. He'll be considered day-to-day moving forward.

Rays' Yandy Diaz: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Yankees, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Diaz will get his second consecutive day off, making way for Joey Wendle to draw the start at the hot corner.

Rays' Yandy Diaz: Gets breather
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz is not in the lineup Monday against the Yankees, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Diaz has started 15 consecutive games since returning from the injured list June 2, slashing .361/.426/.508 with two homers, nine RBI and a 7:9 BB:K during that stretch. Joey Wendle is starting at the hot corner and hitting eighth in place of Diaz in this one.

Rays' Yandy Diaz: Smashes 11th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer in a 5-3 loss to the Angels on Saturday.

Diaz brought the Rays to within one run with his opposite-field blast in the sixth inning off Jose Suarez. It was just his second home run in his last 21 games, but he is still hitting well, going 20-for-57 in June. He now holds a .282/.361/.502 slash line for the season.

Rays' Yandy Diaz: Stays hot in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz went 3-for-4 with an RBI single, a double, a walk and two runs in a win over the Angels on Friday.

Diaz's hot streak at the plate continued Friday, with his multi-hit effort serving as his fourth in the last eight games. The slugging infielder now has 23 extra-base hits (12 doubles, one triple, 10 home runs) and 27 RBI on the campaign despite a recent 11-game stint on the injured list, and he's boosted his season average an impressive 37 points to .282 since June 4.

Rays' Yandy Diaz: Raps out three hits in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz went 3-for-5 with an RBI double and was caught stealing on his only attempt in a loss to the Athletics on Wednesday.

Diaz tried his best to set the table from the top of the order, but the hitters behind him repeatedly failed to get him around the bases. The 27-year-old's multi-hit effort was just the latest installment of his successful month at the plate, one during which he's generated a .326 average partly on the strength of four multi-hit tallies. Diaz has notably proven to be a rousing success as a leadoff hitter overall this season, as he's now hitting .360 with 10 extra-base hits (four doubles, one triple, five home runs) and 10 RBI out of that slotting in the lineup.

Rays' Yandy Diaz: Posts four-hit game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz went 4-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs in a 6-1 victory against the Red Sox on Sunday.

The 27-year-old had a nice weekend at Fenway Park, but his hot streak really started at Comerica Park on Thursday. Diaz is 9-for-23 (.391) in the last five games. The bad news is that hot streak has produced eight singles with just one homer and two RBI. Diaz is batting .270 with 10 home runs, 24 RBI, 31 runs and one steal in 189 at-bats during 2019.

Rays' Yandy Diaz: Trio of hits in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz went 3-for-5 with a run in a win over the Tigers on Thursday.

Diaz was a thorn in the side of Tigers pitching throughout the contest, generating his first multi-hit effort since May 19 in the process. The 27-year-old had gone just 1-for-7 in his first two games back from a hand injury, but he's now 4-for-8 with a pair of walks and runs apiece over the last two contests.
