Giants' Isan Diaz: Debuts at Triple-A
Diaz (hamstring) was reinstated from Triple-A Sacramento's 7-day injured list Saturday and has gone 3-for-8 with two home runs, three RBI and an additional run in his first two games of the season.
Diaz had been sidelined for more than two months with a hamstring strain that was apparently severe. The 26-year-old hasn't missed a beat in his return to the Triple-A lineup and retains a spot on the Giants' 40-man roster, so it wouldn't be surprising if he ranked near the top of the list for a promotion the next time San Francisco requires an extra infielder....

Giants' Isan Diaz: Opens season on shelf
Triple-A Sacramento placed Diaz (hamstring) on its 7-day injured list Friday.
Diaz will be sidelined to begin the minor-league season due to the hamstring injury he picked up in a March 13 Cactus League game. The 26-year-old infielder possesses a spot on the Giants' 40-man roster and could be an option for the big club at some point later in the 2023 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Isan Diaz: Exits game with tight hamstring
Diaz was lifted from Monday's Cactus League game against the Padres due to slight hamstring tightness, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
It's not clear exactly how Diaz sustained the injury, but it appears to be a relatively minor issue. Still, anything involving the hamstring could take multiple days to get over, so expect the Giants to proceed cautiously. Diaz is competing for a reserve infielder job, and any prolonged absence will hinder his chances of making the Opening Day roster.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Isan Diaz: Optioned to Triple-A level
Diaz (hamstring) was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento by the Giants on Tuesday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Diaz came down with a bit of hamstring tightness earlier this week, but he was already on the outside looking in for an Opening Day roster spot in San Francisco. The 26-year-old will serve as organizational infield depth for the Giants in 2023.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Isan Diaz: Contract selected by Giants
Diaz's contract was selected by the Giants on Wednesday.
Diaz was traded from the Marlins to the Giants in late April, and he slashed .275/.377/.574 with 23 home runs, 61 RBI, 60 runs and seven stolen bases over 83 games at Triple-A Sacramento last year. He'll likely be in the mix for a big-league roster spot during spring training in 2023.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Isan Diaz: Traded to Giants
Diaz was traded to the Giants from the Marlins on Saturday for a player to be named or cash considerations, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Diaz remained in the Marlins' minor-league system for a little over a month after being designated for assignment in late March, but that will be the extent of his time with the club. Diaz has appeared in 145 big-league games, but he has posted just a.185 batting average and .562 OPS. He is still 25 and was once a top-100 prospect, so the Giants could give him another shot at the top level at some point.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Isan Diaz: Returns from IL
Triple-A Jacksonville activated Diaz (undisclosed) from its 7-day injured list Tuesday.
Diaz, who was outrighted to Jacksonville on March 29 after clearing waivers, made his debut for the affiliate a week later but has since been sidelined for the past two and a half weeks. After he made a pair of rehab appearances at Single-A Jupiter, Diaz looks prepared to reclaim an everyday role for Jacksonville.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Isan Diaz: Cast off 40-man roster
The Marlins designated Diaz for assignment Tuesday.
Diaz was dropped from the 40-man roster to clear a spot for outfielder/designated hitter Jorge Soler, whose three-year contract with the Marlins became official Tuesday. A prominent member of the Marlins' return haul in the January 2018 deal that sent Christian Yelich to Milwaukee, Diaz never emerged as the core contributor in the middle infield that Miami envisioned. Over 500 plate appearances with the Marlins across parts of the past three seasons, Diaz slashed .185/.275/.287 with nine home runs, 45 runs and 41 RBI while striking out 27.8 percent of the time....

Marlins' Isan Diaz: Demoted to minors
Diaz was optioned to Triple-A Jacksonville on Friday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Diaz has recently been operating as Miami's everyday third baseman, but he'll head back to the minors despite going 7-for-20 with four walks and two runs in his past eight contests. Eddy Alvarez and Joe Panik should split time at the hot corner for the Marlins.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Isan Diaz: Sitting Sunday
Diaz will be on the bench for Sunday's game in Atlanta, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Diaz had started six straight games at third base, but he's now been on the bench for two in a row. His .192/.288/.284 slash line in 265 plate appearances this season doesn't make a strong case for regular at-bats. Eddy Alvarez will make his second straight start at the hot corner Sunday....

Marlins' Isan Diaz: Takes over as top third baseman
Diaz will start at third base and bat eighth Wednesday against the Mets, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Despite going hitless in eight at-bats over his last three games, Diaz will stick in the starting nine at the hot corner for the fourth straight contest. After Brian Anderson (shoulder) was moved to the injured list Sept. 3 with an injury that will likely sideline him for the rest of the season, Diaz should have a decent amount of leash in an everyday role at third base....

Marlins' Isan Diaz: Scores three times Wednesday
Diaz went 3-for-4 with a double, a walk and three runs Wednesday in Miami's 11-9 loss to Atlanta.
Diaz has largely looked lost at the plate in 2021 for Miami, but he's currently in the midst of his most productive stretch of the season. He's recorded at least one hit in each of his last nine starts, going 12-for-34 (.353 average) with a home run, a stolen base, 10 runs and two RBI. Diaz doesn't have a clear path to an everyday lineup spot at the moment, but expect the Marlins to stagger days off for Jazz Chisholm and Brian Anderson to help give Diaz at least a handful of starts per week while he's swinging a hot bat....

Marlins' Isan Diaz: Pops fourth homer
Diaz went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's 12-2 loss to Atlanta.
He took Touki Toussaint deep in the second inning to give Miami a 2-1 lead, but the game was all Atlanta after that. Diaz has been in the lineup fairly regularly throughout August and hasn't squandered the opportunities, slashing .268/.302/.488 through 43 plate appearances with two of his four homers on the year....

Marlins' Isan Diaz: Benched in second straight
Diaz is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs.
Diaz made four consecutive starts from Monday through Friday, but he's expected to serve as a utility infielder moving forward after Jazz Chisholm was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list earlier this weekend. Over 201 plate appearances on the season, Diaz is slashing .192/.299/.291 with three home runs and one stolen base.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Isan Diaz: Playing time drying up
Diaz is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Diaz looked poised for a spike in playing time after Jazz Chisholm was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Aug. 3, but that window closed a day later when Chisholm was reinstated from the IL. Now on the bench for the third time in four games, Diaz doesn't look set to receive regular work against either right-handed or left-handed pitching for the foreseeable future.... See More ...

Marlins' Isan Diaz: Belts third homer
Diaz went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Mets.
His third-inning blast off Taijuan Walker gave the Marlins a 2-0 lead in a game during which they never trailed. Diaz hadn't gone yard since May 7 and has only three homers on the year, but he should get regular starts at second base while Jazz Chisholm (COVID-19) is sidelined and has been productive since the All-Star break, slashing .289/.372/.474 over his last 15 games.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Isan Diaz: Back on bench
Diaz is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Padres, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Diaz will take a seat after he had picked up starts in four of the past five games, with the 25-year-old going 4-for-17 with a double, two walks and three runs scored over that stretch. While Jon Berti's (concussion) move to the 7-day injured list temporarily opened up more playing time for Diaz, Brian Anderson's (shoulder) return from the 60-day IL on Saturday will likely result in Diaz moving back into a utility role....

Marlins' Isan Diaz: Rejoins big-league club
Diaz was recalled from Triple-A Jacksonville on Friday.
Diaz was demoted to Triple-A in mid-June but will rejoin the Marlins coming out of the All-Star break. The 25-year-old is hitting .146/.286/.223 with a 29.4 percent strikeout rate in 126 plate appearances in the majors this season. He's unlikely to play a significant role with Jazz Chisholm, Jon Berti and Joe Panik healthy.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Isan Diaz: Optioned to Triple-A
Diaz was optioned to Triple-A Jacksonville on Friday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Diaz hit just .146 with two home runs, 10 RBI and six runs during his time with the major-league club, and he posted a 29.4 percent strikeout rate. He'll attempt to sort things out in the minors after Miguel Rojas (finger) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Jon Berti will likely serve as the primary third baseman going forward with Brian Anderson (shoulder) still on the shelf, while Deven Marrero could also see an uptick in playing time.... See More ...
