Pirates' Elias Diaz: Bowing out of season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz is not starting against the Nationals on Sunday.

The rookie is slumping his way into the offseason, getting four hits in his last 32 at-bats. Diaz's receiving skills continue to need work, but he remains the likely backup to starter Francisco Cervelli in 2018. Given Cervelli's penchant for landing on the DL, Diaz could see significant playing time next year.

Pirates' Elias Diaz: Seeing more action behind plate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz went 1-for-3 with a double against the Brewers on Monday.

The 26-year-old has played complete games for Pittsburgh in 13 of the team's last 16 contests as he gains experience for 2018. Diaz, who is slashing .234/.250/.340 during his September run (48 plate appearances), figures to see fairly regular playing time next year while serving as the fragile Francisco Cervelli's backup. He's hit .275 against lefties, albeit small sample (41 plate appearances), and could become a streaming option versus southpaws.

Pirates' Elias Diaz: Out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz is not in the lineup against the Cubs on Wednesday.

Diaz will head to the bench following four straight starts, including a 1-for-3 day during Tuesday's victory. In his place, Chris Stewart draws the assignment behind the plate.

Pirates' Elias Diaz: Earns third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz will start at catcher and bat eighth Monday against the Cubs.

With Diaz picking up his third consecutive start Monday, it looks as though he'll be the Pirates' top option behind the plate until Francisco Cervelli (quadriceps) returns from the disabled list, perhaps later in the week. The non-contending Pirates probably aren't eager to use Cervelli on a full-time basis in September given the multitude of injuries he's dealt with this season, so Diaz could be in store for semi-regular work even after Cervelli returns.

Pirates' Elias Diaz: Returns to Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz was recalled by the Pirates on Saturday.

He returns to the Pirates with Francisco Cervelli heading back to the disabled list due to an irritated quadriceps. Diaz figures to platoon with Chris Stewart behind the dish while Cervelli is on the shelf. The 26-year-old Diaz is slashing .250/.283/.350 with 16 RBI in 100 at-bats this season.
