    Diaz (knee) returned to the lineup for Triple-A New Orleans on Monday, going 0-for-3 with two walks and a run scored.

    Impact

    He has been battling some knee soreness, but there were no structural issues found and Diaz avoided the injured list, as expected. Through 72 games with New Orleans this season, Diaz is batting .288/.377/.542 with 16 home runs and a 22.1 percent strikeout rate, down from 29 percent at the Triple-A level in 2018. It's widely assumed that Diaz will take over at second base for Miami down the stretch, making him a viable stash in deeper fantasy leagues.

    News

    Diaz has been out of the lineup the last two days at Triple-A New Orleans due to a sore knee, Craig Mish of FNTSY Sports Radio reports.

    Impact

    Diaz is enjoying a strong season for the Baby Cakes with a .292/.377/.549 slash line and 16 home runs in 71 games, but he's taking a few days off after tweaking his knee. The 22-year-old isn't expected to require a trip to the injured list and should return to action within the next couple days.

    News

    Diaz went 2-for-3 with two solo home runs and a third run scored for Triple-A New Orleans on Thursday.

    Impact

    The 23-year-old continues to flex his muscles. Diaz now has 16 homers through 70 games this season to go with a .287/.372/.547 slash line, an outstanding first half for a player whose career high in long balls is 20, set in Low-A in 2016. There isn't room in Miami for him as long as Starlin Castro is around, but Diaz could see a late-season promotion if Castro is dealt at the deadline.
