  • Yandy Diaz Starting On The Bench Thursday

    Tampa Bay Rays infielder Yandy Diaz is not in the starting lineup on Thursday against the Baltimore Orioles. It will be his first game off in the second half of the season. Diaz has gone 7-for-24 (.292) with a homer, five RBI and three runs scored in six games to open the second half. The 30-year-old Cuban is hitting a strong .294 on the year, but he has just four home runs, 31 RBI, 43 runs scored and one stolen base in 306 at-bats. Isaac Paredes is starting at the hot corner on Thursday and is batting third against Orioles right-hander Jordan Lyles. Paredes is hitting just .223 on the year, but he's also added 14 long balls and 29 RBI in 179 at-bats, and he makes for a solid low-cost DFS play on Thursday.

  • Yandy Diaz "Should Be Ok" After HBP

    Tampa Bay Rays infielder Yandy Diaz was hit by a pitch during the ninth inning of Saturday's win over the Baltimore Orioles. According to manager Kevin Cash, Diaz "should be Ok" after getting hit in the forearm by a pitch. The 30-year-old went 0-for-4 before exiting Saturday's game. He is considered day-to-day. Diaz is slashing .294/.407/.390 with three home runs, 26 RBI, 40 runs, and a stolen base over 83 games in 2022. Diaz appears to have avoided a significant injury, and his next chance to return will be Sunday in the series finale against the Orioles.

  • Yandy Diaz Stays Hot, Plates Three Monday

    Tampa Bay Rays corner infielder Yandy Diaz continued to produce at the plate in Monday's 10-5 win over the Red Sox. Diaz went 3-for-3 with a single, two doubles, and three RBI. The 30-year-old hasn't hit for much power this season but has a .307/.418/.409 slash line with three home runs and 23 RBI. The lack of power does limit his fantasy value to a degree, but his ability to get on base may make him worth a look in deeper points leagues for fantasy managers looking for a consistent bat in their lineups.

  • Yandy Diaz Reaches Four Times Wednesday

    Tampa Bay Rays third baseman Yandy Diaz reached base four times Wednesday night, going 2-for-3 with a double, two walks, and two runs scored. Diaz is a perennial on-base machine, and this season is no different as he is batting .295 and has walked 47 times in 298 plate appearances. Diaz is slashing .389/.484/.519 over his last 15 games and has at least one hit in 11 straight. If fantasy managers can afford the lack of power or speed, Diaz is excellent for all other categories.

  • Yandy Diaz Available But Not Starting Tuesday

    Tampa Bay Rays infielder Yandy Diaz (shoulder) is out of the lineup for the second straight game on Tuesday as the team takes on Pablo Lopez and the Miami Marlins. However, Rays manager Kevin Cash stated on Tuesday that Diaz will be available off the bench for the game and that he will likely be back in the starting lineup on Wednesday. Diaz exited Saturday's game with a left shoulder strain and he hasn't played since. The 30-year-old has been swinging the bat well this year with a .282/.400/.385 slash line to go along with three home runs, 10 RBI and 18 runs over 35 games.

  • Yandy Diaz Out With Shoulder Injury

    Tampa Bay Rays corner infielder Yandy Diaz (shoulder) is not in the starting lineup on Sunday against the Baltimore Orioles. Diaz left the game early on Saturday with a strained left shoulder, but it's unknown at this time if the injury is serious enough to land him on the injured list. The 30-year-old will likely undergo tests during the team's off day on Monday. Ji-Man Choi will start at first base and bat third on Sunday, while Harold Ramirez is the designated hitter and is batting cleanup against Orioles right-hander Spenser Watkins. Diaz is off to a solid start this year, hitting .282 with three home runs, 10 RBI and 18 runs scored in 34 games. Ramirez is an intriguing DFS case on Sunday. He doesn't have any homers on the year, but he's slashing .299/.347/.345 in 30 games played.

  • Yandy Diaz Dealing With A Shoulder Strain

    Tampa Bay Rays infielder Yandy Diaz (shoulder) suffered a shoulder strain during Saturday's 6-1 win over the Baltimore Orioles. The 30-year-old went 1-for-3 with a run scored before exiting in the sixth inning. He was replaced in the game by Isaac Paredes. Diaz will be evaluated on Sunday and is considered day-to-day. Paredes would see an uptick in playing time while Diaz is sidelined. The 23-year-old homered twice in Wednesday's win over the Detroit Tigers. Fantasy managers looking for a streamer in deep-league formats can use Paredes while he's wielding a hot bat.
