  • Astros' Yainer Diaz: Homers in loss

    Diaz went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Thursday's 13-3 loss to the Royals.

    Diaz provided one of the few bright spots in Houston's lopsided defeat, blasting a 432-foot homer off Brady Singer to get the Astros on the board in the fourth inning. The 25-year-old Diaz has gotten off to a scorching start at the plate, going 17-for-51 (.333) with a .931 OPS, three homers and seven RBI through his first 13 games. Diaz looks to be building on his impressive rookie campaign, where he slashed .282/.308/.538 with 23 home runs and 60 RBI across 355 at-bats.

  • Astros' Yainer Diaz: Hits bench Monday

    Diaz is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Rangers, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

    Diaz made eight starts behind the plate and two at designated hitter in Houston's first 10 games of the season, but he'll receive a breather Monday. Victor Caratini will start at catcher and bat ninth against Texas lefty Andrew Heaney.

  • Astros' Yainer Diaz: Heater continues

    Diaz went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs in Monday's win over the Blue Jays.

    Diaz tacked on a third multi-hit game to open up the 2024 campaign, with both knocks coming on solo homers Monday. The backstop ranks second in runs batted in for Houston and is slashing .444/.500/.778 in five games and 18 at-bats -- an impressive start after putting up 23 homers and a .282 average in 2023.

  • Astros' Yainer Diaz: Focused on defensive work

    Diaz is focused on familiarizing himself with the Astros' pitching staff during spring training, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

    He is set to take over as Houston's primary catcher after the offseason departure of Martin Maldonado. Diaz played 42 games behind the dish in 2023, but he never caught Framber Valdez or Justin Verlander (shoulder), so being on the same page with the team's top two starters will be vital come the regular season. Diaz seemingly has fewer questions as a hitter, as he delivered an impressive .282/.308/.538 across 377 plate appearances last season.
