Padres' Miguel Diaz: Optioned to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz was optioned to the Padres' minor-league camp Wednesday.

This move comes as a bit of a surprise after Diaz received praise from outfielder Wil Myers and manager Andy Green for his performance thus far in camp. The 23-year-old appeared in 31 games for the major-league team in 2017, posting a 7.34 ERA and 1.66 WHIP with a 33:25 K:BB over 41.2 innings. He will likely begin this season at the Triple-A level but remains a candidate to join the team at some point in 2018.

Padres' Miguel Diaz: Turning heads in spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz, who is scheduled to pitch in relief Friday in the Padres' exhibition opener against the Mariners, has impressed the coaching staff and teammates early in camp with an effective three-pitch mix, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. "[Diaz] was nasty," outfielder Wil Myers said, after taking batting practice against the right-hander Wednesday. "One of the best live BPs I've ever seen."

Though Myers' comments may have been a bit hyperbolic, he's not the only one glowing about Diaz's performance early in camp, as Padres manager Andy Green noted that the 23-year-old is sporting a vastly improved changeup to complement his mid-to-upper-90s slider and quality slider. After making the jump from High-A to the majors last season as a Rule 5 pick, Diaz was predictably overmatched, delivering a 7.34 ERA, 1.66 WHIP and 33:25 K:BB and allowing 11 home runs in 41.2 innings. Since he remained on the roster for the entire season, Diaz is eligible to return to the minors in 2018, with an assignment at Double-A San Antonio or Triple-A El Paso likely awaiting him even if he continues to shine in Cactus League play. By virtue of logging 31 appearances in the majors last season, Diaz is likely no longer prospect eligible in most formats, but his development in the minors could be worth tracking in the event he receives a promotion back to the big leagues at some point.

Padres' Miguel Diaz: Activated from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz (forearm) was activated from the 60-day DL prior to Tuesday's game against the Giants, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

It was thought that Diaz wouldn't be activated until rosters expanded in September, but the Padres need the bullpen depth now, so they acted early. Dillon Overton was designated for assignment to clear a spot on the 40-man roster. Diaz has been quite poor this season (6.82 ERA), but that was to be expected, as the Padres took him in the Rule 5 draft despite the fact he had never pitched above Low-A prior to this season. They will keep him on the active roster for the rest of the season, but it seems likely he will be sent back to the minors in 2018 to face more appropriate competition.

Padres' Miguel Diaz: To make one last rehab start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz (forearm) will take another rehab start before making his return to San Diego, A.J. Cassavell of MLB.com reports Monday.

Diaz is still on pace to return in early September, most likely Aug. 5 against St. Louis. The right-hander managed just three starts before his forearm injury sent him to the disabled list, so 2017's final month will mostly be about getting him ready to go for next season.

Padres' Miguel Diaz: Moves to 60-day disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diaz (forearm) was moved to the 60-day DL on Saturday.

Diaz allowed just one run over four innings during his rehab start at Lake Elsinore on Friday. There has been no indication that he incurred a setback, so the move is likely procedural to make room on the 40-man roster for the newly acquired Tim Melville. Even though he was moved to the 60-day disabled list, Diaz is still eligible to be activated whenever the club deems fit.
