Triple-A El Paso placed Diaz on its 7-day injured list Monday.
The nature of Diaz's injury isn't known, but he'll be on the shelf for at least the next week while tending to the matter. Since being demoted by the Padres on June 15, Diaz made four appearances for El Paso, giving up two runs in 7.2 innings.
Diaz was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Saturday.
Diaz spent 10 days on the roster after missing a large portion of the season due to a torn meniscus. He allowed five runs in 6.1 innings of work. Phil Maton was recalled to take his place in the bullpen.
Diaz (knee) was activated from the 60-day injured list Wednesday.
Diaz has been sidelined all season while recovering from a torn meniscus, but he's ready to make his 2019 big-league debut after completing a six-game rehab assignment with Double-A Amarillo during which he compiled a 4.37 ERA and 33:8 K:BB in 22.2 innings. Brad Wieck was optioned to the minors while Alex Dickerson was designated for assignment in a pair of corresponding moves.
Diaz (knee) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Wednesday.
This move frees up a spot on the team's 40-man roster for Cal Quantrill, whose contract was purchased from Triple-A El Paso ahead of his scheduled start Wednesday. Diaz has been sidelined all season while recovering from a torn meniscus in his right knee, and now the 24-year-old won't be eligible to return until the end of May.
Diaz (torn meniscus) was placed on the 10-day IL.
He suffered the injury right after reporting to camp in mid-February, and is expected to be out for at least a couple more weeks. Once healthy, he will either be optioned to the minors or will serve as a low-leverage reliever in the big-league bullpen.
Diaz will undergo arthroscopic surgery after tearing the lateral meniscus on his right knee, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Diaz suffered the injury during a bullpen session Saturday. He's expected to return before the end of April but will almost certainly open the season on the injured list. The 24-year-old will lose out on his chance to be a part of the Opening Day bullpen but still could spend a good chunk of the season on the big-league roster after recording an excellent 35.3 percent strikeout rate in 18.2 innings of relief last season.
Diaz will require further testing on his injured right knee, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
The right-hander left Saturday's bullpen session due to what appeared to be a leg injury, but there is now more swelling in the knee area than before. Diaz will undergo more tests to determine the severity of the issue soon.
Diaz ended his bullpen session early Saturday with an apparent leg injury, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Diaz stopped his session mid-pitch and winced in pain. The nature and severity of the injury are not yet clear.
Diaz was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Friday.
Diaz has only made one appearance at the major-league level this season after tossing 41.2 innings of relief for the Padres in 2017. He was recently moved up to El Paso from Double-A San Antonio, where he's logged a 2.35 ERA and 1.15 WHIP across 65 innings. Expect him to be deployed in low-leverage spots with San Diego.
Diaz was sent to Double-A San Antonio on Monday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Diaz tossed two innings, allowing no runs on one hit while striking out five during Sunday's tilt against Arizona. The Padres have elected to send Diaz back down to the minors in exchange for a fresh arm, as Walker Lockett has been recalled.
The Padres recalled Diaz from Double-A San Antonio on Sunday.
Diaz will give the Padres a much-needed fresh arm in long relief after the team needed four relievers to toss 20 pitches or more in Saturday's 20-5 loss to the Diamondbacks. Kazuhisa Makita, who gave up seven (five earned) of the 12 runs surrendered by the bullpen, was optioned to Triple-A El Paso to make room for Diaz. Over his 54.2 innings between Triple-A and Double-A this season, Diaz has posted a 3.79 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 58 strikeouts.
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 he remains a candidate to join the team at some point in 2018.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Diaz (forearm) is pitching in the Arizona Rookie League on Tuesday and will make a rehab appearance with High-A Lake Elsinore after that, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Diaz hit the DL with a right forearm strain on June 21 but has finally progressed to the final stages of his rehab program. Manager Andy Green announced that the young pitcher will be close to returning to the majors after his two upcoming minor-league appearances. Barring any setbacks, it seems he's on track to return from the DL in late August or early September.
Diaz (forearm) will begin a rehab assignment within the next week, The San Diego Union-Tribune's Jeff Sanders reports.
Diaz has been out since June 21 with a right forearm strain but appears to be a couple of weeks away from returning to the Padres. He projects to enter the starting rotation once he rejoins the big-league roster, and will be stretched out accordingly. There will likely be a more definitive timetable for Diaz's return once his rehab assignment begins.
Diaz (forearm) will begin a throwing program later this week and work on his lower-body mechanics in Arizona over the All-Star break, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Diaz has been on the disabled list with a right forearm strain since June 23. Based on his current rehab schedule, it appears that the 22-year-old projects to make his big-league return during mid-August.
Diaz was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a right forearm strain, Dennis Lin of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Diaz exited his last start in the third inning due to the injury, and it's apparently serious enough to warrant a trip to the DL. It's unclear when he'll be able to return at this point, though the Padres will likely proceed cautiously with the 22-year-old Rule 5 pick. While his replacement in the rotation hasn't been named, it will likely be one of three Padres pitchers expected to return from the DL relatively soon: Christian Friedrich (elbow), Trevor Cahill (shoulder), or Jered Weaver (hip). Hector Sanchez was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding roster move.
