  • Elias Diaz Sitting Wednesday Versus Cubs

    Headshot for Elias Diaz

    Colorado Rockies catcher Elias Diaz is not in the club's starting lineup for Wednesday afternoon's contest against the Chicago Cubs and right-hander Jameson Taillon. It's not a surprise to see the All-Star backstop get the afternoon off following a night contest on Tuesday in which he logged a trio of singles and an RBI in the Rockies' 6-4 triumph over the Cubs. The 32-year-old made the All-Star team on the back of a .277 average and .761 OPS in the season's first half but Diaz has hit .263 with a .702 OPS since the All-Star break. Austin Wynns will take over the behind the plate and hit ninth against Taillon Wednesday in Denver.

  • Elias Diaz Gets A Breather

    Headshot for Elias Diaz

    Colorado Rockies catcher Elias Diaz is taking the day off on Wednesday with the team facing the Arizona Diamondbacks. Austin Wynns will do the catching instead and bat ninth against Diamondbacks right-hander Zach Davies. This will be Diaz's first day off since Aug. 22. The 32-year-old All-Star backstop is batting .211 (4-for-19) with one double, two RBI, seven strikeouts and two runs scored in five games (four starts) to begin the month of September. In his fourth year in Colorado in 2023, Diaz is slashing .268/.315/.415 with 13 home runs, 22 doubles, a triple, 64 RBI and 41 runs scored in a career-high 123 games played. Wynns should be avoided in DFS. He's gone 18-for-94 (.191) this year with only one round-tripper.

  • Elias Diaz Getting Day Off On Saturday

    Headshot for Elias Diaz

    Colorado Rockies catcher Elias Diaz is out of Saturday's lineup against the Miami Marlins. It appears to be a maintenance day for the 32-year-old. Austin Wynns hits ninth and takes over behind the plate to catch right-hander Chase Anderson for this one. Diaz, the 2023 All-Star Game MVP, went deep on Friday night to end an 18-game homerless slump, going a brutal 8-for-55 over this skid. Fantasy managers should expect the backstop to return to action for Sunday's series finale in Miami. Diaz has served as a top-10 fantasy catcher in roto leagues this year, batting .268 with 10 big flies, 46 RBI, and 28 runs scored in 298 at-bats.

  • Elias Diaz Getting Sunday Off

    Headshot for Elias Diaz

    Colorado Rockies All-Star catcher Elias Diaz will begin Sunday's contest against Gerrit Cole and the New York Yankees on the bench. The 32-year-old has been a solid source of offense from behind the plate, batting .271 with nine homers, 27 runs, and 45 RBI over 82 games. Austin Wynns will take care of the catching duties instead and bat ninth. The fifth-year player is not much of a threat with the bat and is slashing just .207/.254/.293 this season across 25 games. There are much better backstop options on the waiver wire.

  • Elias Diaz Voted All-Star Game MVP

    Headshot for Elias Diaz

    Colorado Rockies catcher Elias Diaz was voted Tuesday's All-Star Game Most Valuable Player in a 3-2 win over the American League team. Diaz went 1-for-2 with a go-ahead two-run home run and a strikeout. His big at-bat came in the eighth inning down by a run with no outs and the tying run on second. Facing Felix Bautista, he launched a splitter into the left-field seats to put the National League team ahead 3-2, which would be the final score. The 32-year-old was the only Rockies All-Star representative and became the first Rockies player to win All-Star MVP honors. Diaz has had a solid offensive season, slashing .277/.328/.435 with nine HR and 45 RBI. He should continue to be a viable fantasy option in the second half with the benefit of hitting in Coors Field.
