  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Knocks in three Tuesday

    Diaz went 1-for-3 with an RBI sacrifice fly and a two-run double in a win over the Royals on Tuesday.

    Diaz extended the Athletics' lead to 2-0 with his first-inning sac fly and then knocked in Oakland's final two runs with his timely two-bagger in the third. The veteran infielder has now hit safely in six straight starts, a stretch during which he's boasting a .391 average with five extra-base hits.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Accounts for offense in loss

    Diaz went 2-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs and a walk in Saturday's 7-2 extra-inning loss to the Orioles.

    Diaz took Cole Irvin deep in the second inning and tagged former teammate Shintaro Fujinami for the other homer in the sixth. The two-homer game snapped a 35-game power drought for Diaz, who had seven doubles while batting .236 in that span. He's at a .224/.283/.323 slash line for the year after his third multi-hit effort in his last four games. The utilityman has added 19 RBI, 22 runs scored, 13 doubles and a stolen base through 280 plate appearances this year.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Multi-hit effort in Sunday's loss

    Diaz went 2-for-5 with an RBI single and a double in a loss to the Nationals on Sunday.

    The veteran slotted in at shortstop before subsequently shifting to first base later in the contest, and he posted his first multi-hit effort since July 8 during what was only his fourth start of August. Diaz has been in the starting nine in just 11 of the Athletics' 26 contests since the All-Star break, and although he owns a strong .263 average and .356 on-base percentage thus far in the second half, he could continue to see his playing time take a hit down the stretch as Oakland attempts to evaluate as many young players as possible.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Out of Wednesday's lineup

    Diaz is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Dodgers.

    Diaz is 2-for-16 over his past seven games and will take a seat for Wednesday's matchup with Los Angeles. Jordan Diaz will start at the hot corner and bat sixth for the A's.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Comes through as pinch hitter

    Diaz entered Tuesday's loss to the Giants as a pinch hitter in the eighth inning and remained in the game at shortstop, going 1-for-1 with a run scored.

    Diaz led off the eighth with a pinch-hit knock and ended up scoring the game-tying run on JJ Bleday's single later in the frame. The veteran infielder is carrying an abysmal .211/.263/.287 slash line on the season, but Diaz has enjoyed a reasonably productive July in comparison -- he's posted a .267 average and .636 OPS with two doubles and three RBI across 34 plate appearances during the month.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Hits bench with righty starting

    Diaz is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox.

    While Oakland faced left-handed starting pitchers in four of its past five games, Diaz had started at first base or third base on four occasions, going a collective 4-for-15 during that stretch. He'll be on the bench Sunday versus right-hander Tayler Scott and looks as though he'll be relegated to a utility role for the time being, with most of Diaz's starting opportunities expected to come against southpaws.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Not starting Sunday

    Diaz is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox.

    Diaz went 2-for-4 with two doubles, an RBI and a run Friday to break out of an 0-for-15 slump, and he's on the bench Sunday for the second straight game. Tyler Wade is starting at shortstop and batting eighth in the series finale versus Chicago.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Sitting Saturday

    Diaz isn't in the Athletics' lineup Saturday against the White Sox.

    Diaz broke a six-game hitless streak Friday with a pair of doubles while also driving in an RBI and scoring a run. He'll get a breather Saturday while Tyler Wade starts at shortstop and bats eighth.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Laces pair of doubles in win

    Diaz went 2-for-4 with an RBI double, another two-bagger and a run in a win over the White Sox on Friday.

    The veteran infielder knocked in JJ Bleday with the Athletics' penultimate run of the night in the eighth inning, giving Diaz his fifth RBI of June. The 32-year-old's multi-hit effort was also his first since June 10, and despite his unsightly .206/.262/.286 slash line, he continues to find his way into the lineup on a near-everyday basis due to his ability to fill in across the infield and at designated hitter.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: On bench Tuesday

    Diaz is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Yankees.

    Tyler Wade will start at shortstop and bat eighth for the Athletics. Diaz has been getting more playing time with Kevin Smith (back) still sitting on the injured list, but the 32-year-old holds a weak .206/.264/.278 slash line in 197 plate appearances this season.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: On bench Wednesday

    Diaz is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Guardians.

    Diaz had started at shortstop for three of the past four games, but he'll cede the position to Tyler Wade on Wednesday. With Nick Allen having been optioned to the minors and with Kevin Smith (back) now on the injured list, Diaz looks like he could receive another look in a near-everyday role in the Oakland middle infield.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Homers off bench

    Diaz went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Phillies.

    Diaz has hit safely in four straight games and seven of his last nine, going 10-for-27 (.370) over the longer span. The homer was his first since April 14 and his second of the year. The versatile infielder is up to a .211/.269/.286 slash line with 11 RBI, 12 runs scored and a stolen base through 175 plate appearances while maintaining steady but not everyday playing time in the Athletics' middle infield.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Not starting Sunday

    Diaz is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Phillies.

    Diaz started four of the past five games at shortstop and should continue to see plenty of starts there with Kevin Smith (back) recently landing on the injured list, but Tyler Wade will receive the nod for Sunday's series finale.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Primary source of offense Saturday

    Diaz went 3-for-4 with a game-winning RBI single and a double in an extra-inning victory over the Brewers on Saturday.

    The struggling veteran put together his best offensive performance of the season yet, and it led to an unprecedented fourth straight win for Oakland. Diaz has now hit safely in three straight games to quickly boost his average 29 points to .208, and manager Mark Kotsay's willingness to stick with him as a rotational piece throughout the infield despite extended stretches of sparse production is paying off for the moment.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: On bench for day game

    Diaz is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Pirates.

    After going 2-for-4 with a run in Oakland's 11-2 win Tuesday night, Diaz will head to the bench as the Athletics conclude their series in Pittsburgh with a day game. Kevin Smith will step in at shortstop Wednesday, and he and Diaz could end up forming a timeshare at the position after incumbent starter Nick Allen was demoted to Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Hits bench amid skid

    Diaz is out of the lineup for Monday's game in Pittsburgh.

    Diaz had started in five of the past six games, going hitless in 16 at-bats over that stretch to drop his season-long batting average down to .179. Though he's one of the highest-paid players on the Athletics in the first season of a two-year, $14.5 million deal, Diaz may nonetheless find himself on the bench more frequently in the near future given his wretched start to his tenure in Oakland.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Out of lineup Saturday

    Diaz is out of the lineup Saturday versus the Marlins.

    Diaz has registered an ugly .185/.241/.238 batting line with only five extra-base hits (one homer, four doubles) through 141 plate appearances this season with the Athletics. He's gone hitless in his last four games.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: On bench Thursday

    Diaz is absent from the lineup Thursday at Seattle.

    Diaz went 2-for-4 with a double Wednesday, and while he holds a paltry .189/.244/.243 slash line on the season, he is batting .308 (8-for-26) in eight games since returning from a hamstring injury. With prospect Jordan Diaz back in Triple-A, the 32-year-old Diaz appears to be on the short side of a platoon at second base with Tony Kemp.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Run-scoring double Wednesday

    Diaz went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in a loss to the Mariners on Wednesday.

    Diaz accounted for the Athletics' only run of the night with a seventh-inning two-bagger, his first extra-base hit since April 15. The veteran has been productive at the plate of late despite the lack of impactful hits, however, as he's now sporting a .308 average over the 26 plate appearances covering his last eight games.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Day off Saturday

    Diaz will sit Saturday versus the Astros.

    Diaz will head to the bench after he went 2-for-4 with a strikeout in Friday's 5-1 loss. Nick Allen will take over at shortstop and bat ninth against Houston.
