Diaz went 2-for-4 with a double, two walks, two RBI and a run Sunday in the Astros' 21-1 win over the Mariners.
Diaz was one of seven Astros to produce multiple hits and contributed one of the team's franchise-record 11 two-baggers on the afternoon. The 29-year-old drew a second straight start at first base in the series finale, but he'll likely shift over to the hot corner within the next few days since Yuli Gurriel (hamstring) isn't expected to miss much more time.
Diaz started at first base for a second straight game and went 1-for-2 with two walks in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Mariners.
Diaz will fill in for the injured Yuli Gurriel, who suffered a hamstring injury Thursday and will be out through at least Sunday. Diaz is expected to be the primary fill-in while Gurriel recovers.
Diaz started at first base in place of the injured Yuli Gurriel (elbow) and went 1-for-3 with a double in Sunday's 2-0 win over the Blue Jays.
Diaz was slated to start at third base but shifted across the diamond when Gurriel became a late scratch. This was his third start in the six games since Diaz was activated off the injured list last week.
Diaz started at third base and went 1-for-3 with an RBI in Friday's 7-4 win over Toronto.
Diaz was activated off the injured list Tuesday and has started two of the four games since. Until shortstop Carlos Correa (back) returns, Diaz and Abraham Toro should split time at third base while Alex Bregman fills in at shortstop.
