Pirates' Elias Diaz: Starts against Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz collected his first RBI of the season Monday, going 1-for-4 against the Diamondbacks.

He batted seventh in the lineup but figures to move up in the order as he adjusts to major league pitching. Diaz made several mental mistakes, including his failure to cover home plate on a bases-loaded bunt. Overall, he had a fairly rough season debut from an unknown virus, but at least he's back and will provide fantasy owners with a decent option at catcher.

Pirates' Elias Diaz: Reinstated from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz (illness) was reinstated from the injured list Sunday.

A viral infection stole all of Diaz's spring training and forced him to spend the first few weeks of the season getting up to speed on a rehab assignment. He looks to be good to go after hitting .412 in nine minor-league games. He'll take the backup catcher job behind Francisco Cervelli, with Jacob Stallings (neck) heading to the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

Pirates' Elias Diaz: Making good progress
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz (illness) went 3-for-5 for Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday, giving him eight hits in 17 at-bats during his rehab stint split between two minor-league levels.

He must be activated by April 24 and with Pittsburgh struggling to create offense, it wouldn't be surprising to see him recalled prior the deadline. General manager Neal Huntington previously mentioned that Diaz needs a building-up period but added that the script could change if the catcher showed he was ready sooner.

Pirates' Elias Diaz: Moves rehab to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz's (illness) rehab assignment was transferred to Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

A viral infection wrecked Diaz's spring training, but he's working his way towards a return. When he's ready to go, he should take the Pirates' backup catcher job from Jacob Stallings.

Pirates' Elias Diaz: Rehab assignment on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz (illness) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment with High-A Bradenton on Thursday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Diaz has been sidelined all season due to a viral illness, but he's finally ready to get back into game action. While this is the final hurdle in his recovery, it's still unclear how long the backstop will spend in the minors before being activated from the IL.
