Top Jhonathan Diaz News

  • Angels' Jhonathan Diaz: Designated for assignment

    Diaz (undisclosed) was designated for assignment by the Angels on Friday, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    The 26-year-old lefty was up and down with the Angels over the first few months of 2022. He pitched to a 2.93 ERA in 15.1 innings, though an 11:10 K:BB throws cold water on that number. Diaz will hit waivers, making way for Gio Urshela on the Angels' 40-man roster.

  • Angels' Jhonathan Diaz: Moves to 60-day IL

    Diaz (undisclosed) was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake and placed on the 60-day injured list Sunday.

    The 25-year-old has been sidelined for Salt Lake since mid-July due to the unspecified injury, and the Angels called him up and put him on the 60-day IL to free up a spot on the 40-man roster. Diaz has a 2.93 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 11:10 K:BB over 15.1 big-league innings this year, and it's unclear if he's expected to be back before the end of the season.

  • Angels' Jhonathan Diaz: On injured list

    Diaz (undisclosed) was placed on the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    Diaz hasn't pitched for Salt Lake since July 16, and he's now in the IL with the unspecified injury. The 22-year-old seemed likely to be in the mix for a call-up after the Angels traded Noah Syndergaard to the Phillies, but Chase Silseth will instead be promoted to start in Saturday's doubleheader.

  • Angels' Jhonathan Diaz: Optioned to Triple-A

    Diaz was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday.

    Diaz gave up three runs on five hits in a 1.2-inning start Friday against the Mets, his lone appearance of his latest big-league stint. On the whole this season, his 2.93 ERA in 15.1 innings looks quite respectable, but his 11:10 K:BB suggests he doesn't deserve a mark nearly that good.

  • Angels' Jhonathan Diaz: Early exit in loss to Mets

    Diaz (1-1) took the loss Friday, giving up three runs on five hits and two walks over 1.2 innings as the Angels fell 7-3 to the Mets. He struck out one.

    After a scoreless first inning, New York chased Diaz from the game with a parade of baserunners capped by a two-run double from Mark Canha. The 25-year-old southpaw began his 2022 stint with the Angels by firing 9.2 shutout frames over two starts, but since the calendar flipped to June, Diaz has been tagged for five runs in 5.2 innings, and his 2.93 ERA disguises a poor 11:10 K:BB through 15.1 innings.

  • Angels' Jhonathan Diaz: Starting Friday

    Diaz was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake and is starting Friday's game against the Mets, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Diaz was scratched from Friday's start in Salt Lake and will officially step in to start in the Angels' series opener against the Mets. Over his first three major-league appearances of the season, he's posted a 1.32 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in 13.2 innings.

  • Angels' Jhonathan Diaz: Likely to start Friday

    Diaz was scratched from his start Thursday with Triple-A Salt Lake and is likely to be recalled to start Friday against the Mets, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    The Angels have confirmed they will recall a pitcher from the minors to start Friday. A spot in the rotation opened after Noah Syndergaard was pushed back in the rotation, so Diaz would likely only be making a spot start. Diaz has made three appearances with the big-league club this season and has a 1.32 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 10:8 K:BB across 13.2 frames.

  • Angels' Jhonathan Diaz: Returns to minors

    The Angels optioned Diaz to Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday.

    As anticipated, Diaz was sent back to the minors one day after serving as the Angels' 27th man in the team's doubleheader Thursday with the Yankees. He appeared in long relief in the Angels' 6-1 loss in Game 1, covering four innings and striking out two while giving up two earned runs on four hits.

  • Angels' Jhonathan Diaz: Up as extra man

    Diaz was called up to serve as the 27th man for Thursday's doubleheader against the Yankees.

    Diaz has made a pair of starts at the big-league level this season and has yet to give up a run despite a shaky 8:8 K:BB. It looks as though he'll be available in relief this time around, as Shohei Ohtani and Reid Detmers are lined up to start in the twin bill.

  • Angels' Jhonathan Diaz: Back at Triple-A

    Diaz was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday.

    He was up to serve as a spot starter for Saturday's doubleheader, and with the Angels already having six starters ahead of him on the depth chart, he will go back to Triple-A to await another chance to help the big club. He has logged 9.2 scoreless innings with four hits, eight walks and eight strikeouts over two appearances.

  • Angels' Jhonathan Diaz: Solid in spot start

    Diaz tossed 4.2 scoreless frames in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against Oakland. He gave up one hit and four walks while striking out four.

    He was called up to be the 27th man for the twin bill and has not yet been officially sent back to Triple-A, but that move could be coming Sunday. It seems like Diaz is the presumed seventh option in the rotation for the Angels given the meteoric rise of prospect Chase Silseth, who went from afterthought to being the first player from the 2021 draft to reach the majors.

  • Angels' Jhonathan Diaz: Recalled prior to start

    Diaz was recalled by the Angels as the 27th man for Saturday's doubleheader against the Athletics.

    Diaz is starting Saturday's matinee against Oakland, and he'll officially be designated as the 27th man for the twin bill. Although he's serving as an extra man Saturday, a strong performance should put him in the mix to serve as the Angels' sixth starter going forward. However, he faces strong competition for the rotation spot after Chase Silseth allowed a hit and two walks while striking out four in six scoreless frames against the Athletics on Friday.

  • Angels' Jhonathan Diaz: Rejoining Halos for doubleheader

    The Angels plan to call up Diaz from Triple-A Salt Lake to start the first game of Saturday's doubleheader with the Athletics in Oakland.

    The lefty is expected to be designated as the 27th man for the twin bill. Under normal circumstances, Diaz would likely be headed to Triple-A following Saturday's outing, but he'll have a chance to stake his claim to the sixth and final spot in the Angels' regular rotation with a strong showing versus the Athletics. Meanwhile, Chase Silseth is being called up from Double-A Rocket City to start Friday's series opener, so his performance along with Diaz's will likely determine which of the two sticks around with the big club moving forward. Diaz might have the early leg up on the rotation spot after he impressed during his first start of the season with the Angels last weekend, when he struck out four over five scoreless frames en route to picking up a win against the Nationals.

  • Angels' Jhonathan Diaz: Optioned to minors

    Diaz was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    Diaz was called up for a spot start Friday against the Nationals and earned a win while throwing five shutout innings. He'll return to the minors for now, with Kyle Barraclough taking Diaz's place on the roster.

  • Angels' Jhonathan Diaz: Earns win in spot start

    Diaz (1-0) yielded three hits and four walks over five shutout innings Friday, striking out four and earning a win over the Nationals.

    Diaz wasn't exactly dominant Friday as he put runners in scoring position in three out of five innings, but he managed to keep the Nationals off the board as the Angels' staff combined for a four-hit shutout. He posted a 9:7 K:BB through 13 MLB innings last season and he's registered an 18:10 K:BB with Triple-A Salt Lake this season. Assuming he gets another turn in the rotation, Diaz would be lined up to take the mound in Oakland next weekend.

  • Angels' Jhonathan Diaz: Starting Friday vs. Angels

    Jhonathan Diaz was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake to start Friday's game against the Nationals, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

    A 25-year-old lefty, Diaz logged a 4.15 ERA in 13 innings in the majors last year, working primarily as a starter. He had a 1.96 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 18:10 K:BB in 23 innings through three starts this year at Triple-A.

  • Angels' Jhonathan Diaz: Optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake

    Diaz was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday.

    The 26-year-old was the odd man out as the Angels geared up for the 2022 season, sending him back to Salt Lake. In 2021, Diaz appeared in three games with the team, two of which he started, producing a 4.15 ERA and 1.38 WHIP while picking up a win and striking out nine in 13 innings.

  • Angels' Jhonathan Diaz: Records no-decision in short outing

    Diaz got a no-decision in Saturday's 6-4 loss to Seattle, allowing three runs on six hits and two walks with three strikeouts in 4.1 innings.

    Diaz did well Saturday but was haunted by Mitch Haniger, who drove in all three runs charged to him. The 25-year-old lefty has made only three appearances this season and concludes the campaign with a 4.15 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 9:7 K:BB in 13 innings.
