Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: On bench Thursday
Diaz is absent from the lineup Thursday at Seattle.
Diaz went 2-for-4 with a double Wednesday, and while he holds a paltry .189/.244/.243 slash line on the season, he is batting .308 (8-for-26) in eight games since returning from a hamstring injury. With prospect Jordan Diaz back in Triple-A, the 32-year-old Diaz appears to be on the short side of a platoon at second base with Tony Kemp.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Run-scoring double Wednesday
Diaz went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in a loss to the Mariners on Wednesday.
Diaz accounted for the Athletics' only run of the night with a seventh-inning two-bagger, his first extra-base hit since April 15. The veteran has been productive at the plate of late despite the lack of impactful hits, however, as he's now sporting a .308 average over the 26 plate appearances covering his last eight games....

Diaz will sit Saturday versus the Astros.
Diaz will head to the bench after he went 2-for-4 with a strikeout in Friday's 5-1 loss. Nick Allen will take over at shortstop and bat ninth against Houston.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: On bench Wednesday
Diaz is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Sitting against Arizona
Diaz is out of the starting lineup against the Diamondbacks on Monday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Diaz was just activated off the injured list Sunday and logged two hits in his return from his hamstring injury, but he'll get a day off Monday against Merrill Kelly and the D-Backs. Nick Allen will play shortstop and hit ninth while Jace Peterson is hitting seventh and playing third base.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Logs two hits in return
Diaz (hamstring) went 2-for-4 in Sunday's 11-3 loss to the Rangers.
Diaz missed just over two weeks with a hamstring strain. The first five hitters in the Athletics' lineup went a combined 0-for-19 on Sunday, but Diaz provided some solid batting from the No. 7 spot in the order. The versatile 32-year-old is slashing a meager .169/.237/.225 with one home run, six RBI, seven runs scored, a stolen base and two doubles through 97 plate appearances. Despite his lackluster numbers, he should be able to find fairly steady playing time.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Back from IL
The Athletics reinstated Diaz (hamstring) from the injured list Sunday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. He'll start at third base and bat seventh in the series finale with the Rangers.
Diaz ended up missing just a few days beyond the 10-day minimum due to a Grade 1 hamstring strain. The Athletics optioned Kevin Smith to Triple-A Las Vegas to clear room on the 26-man active roster for Diaz, who should settle back into a full-time role in the infield.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Making encouraging progress
Diaz (hamstring) ran before Thursday's game against the Rangers and has a chance to come off the injured list Sunday, the Associated Press reports.
The team's official site adds that manager Mark Kotsay noted Diaz has actually been able to run for the last few days without any issues. The veteran isn't expected to require a rehab assignment due to the brevity of his absence, so a return when first eligible Sunday remains very much in play.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Placed on 10-day IL
Oakland placed Diaz (hamstring) on the 10-day injured list Tuesday.
Though Diaz's hamstring strain is believed to be of the Grade 1 variety, the Athletics will err on the side of caution and have the infielder take at least the next week and a half off rather than having him play through the minor injury. Nick Allen was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas in a corresponding move and should see plenty of playing time at shortstop while Diaz remains sidelined.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: May not land on IL after all
Diaz was diagnosed with a Grade 1 left hamstring strain after undergoing an MRI on Sunday and could avoid a stint on the injured list, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
After Diaz was forced out of Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Reds with the hamstring issue, manager Mark Kotsay suggested the 32-year-old would require a trip to the IL, but the better-than-expected MRI results have instead prompted the Athletics to view Diaz as day-to-day. An IL stint could still be in the forecast for Diaz, but the Athletics will wait and see how he's feeling following Monday's off day before making a decision on his status one way or the other....

Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: IL stint expected
Athletics manager Mark Kotsay said that Diaz, who exited Saturday's game against the Reds with a hamstring injury, will likely be placed on the injured list, MLB.com reports.
The veteran was replaced by pinch runner Kevin Smith at third base in the second inning, apparently having initially hurt himself when diving for a hard grounder by the Reds' Tyler Stephenson in the top of the frame. Kotsay noted Diaz is due for further evaluation Sunday, but given the nature of soft-tissue injuries, the expectation is that some time off will be in order. Nick Allen, who was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on April 14, is expected to be in line for a return to the big-league club if Diaz's IL stint indeed comes to fruition.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Leaves with hamstring injury
Diaz left Saturday's game against the Reds with a left hamstring injury, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. He went 1-for-1 with an RBI and a stolen base before exiting.
Diaz was replaced as a pinch runner by Kevin Smith shortly after singling in Carlos Perez in the second inning. The versatile infielder should be considered day-to-day at this point.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Gets Friday off
Diaz is not in the starting lineup for Friday's contest against the Reds.
Diaz went just 1-for-11 in a series against the Angels to drop his batting average to .143, and he's in danger of losing more playing time to some of the younger options on the Athletics. Jordan Diaz will play second base with Kevin Smith handling shortstop duties for Friday's battle against Cincinnati.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Sitting out again Tuesday
Diaz is out of the lineup for Tuesday's contest against the Angels, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Belts first homer
Diaz went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Mets on Friday.
The veteran infielder uncorked a 383-foot shot to left field in the fifth inning for his first round-tripper in an Athletics uniform. The multi-hit effort was only the second of the season for Diaz, who'd been mired in a 1-for-18 funk over the previous five games and had recorded just one extra-base hit in his first 12 contests....

Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Sitting out Wednesday
Diaz will take a seat Wednesday versus the Guardians.
Diaz will get a breather after starting the first five games of season, going 3-for-19 with an RBI and a run scored over those contests. Nick Allen will draw the start at shortstop and bat eighth in Wednesday's series finale with Cleveland.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Key knock in season-opening win
Diaz went 2-for-3 with an RBI single and a walk in the Athletics' win over the Angels on Thursday.
He and Seth Brown were the only two players with multiple hits for the Athletics in the pitchers' duel, and Diaz reached base a team-high three times overall. His eighth-inning single snapped a 1-1 tie, plating Tony Kemp with what turned out to be the winning run. Diaz drew the start at shortstop Thursday, but he's projected to see time at second base and third base as well over the course of the season.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Will start at short versus righties
Athletics manager Mark Kotsay said Sunday that Diaz will likely start at shortstop against right-handed pitching to begin the season, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Meanwhile, Nick Allen is expected to enter the lineup at shortstop versus southpaws, though Diaz's right-handedness and defensive versatility should be enough for him to see his fair share of playing time against lefties as well. Signed to a two-year, $14.5 million contract this winter, Diaz looks as though he'll be in line for a near-everyday role, given that he's one of the few Oakland hitters who has had a modicum of success at the highest level. Allen is the better defensive option at shortstop, but Diaz's clearer path to regular playing time and stronger track record at the dish makes him the superior fantasy option.... See More ...

Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Continues battle with Allen
Although Diaz continues in a heated competition with Nick Allen for the starting shortstop role, the veteran's ability to play multiple positions should help him garner a near-everyday role irrespective of how the job battle shakes out, Steve Stockmar of MLB.com reports. "You could see Diaz at shortstop. That's kind of been a trend this Spring Training. That's not set in stone," manager Mark Kotsay said. "Aledmys can play in left, we have the opportunity to DH as well. So there's a ton of combinations that we can put together that we feel good about."
Diaz inked a two-year, $14.5 million deal this offseason, and he's wasted no time validating the investment with a strong spring that includes a .357 average across 33 Cactus League plate appearances. Diaz's career .266 average, .763 OPS and modest 14.7 percent strikeout rate should afford him plenty of job security regardless of whether Allen is declared the victor of their competition, considering Diaz's defensive versatility and the fact Kotsay has emphasized he'll be prioritizing offense this season after Oakland's struggles scoring runs throughout 2022....
