Player Outlook
If Elias Diaz could simply only play when the Rockies were playing at home and facing righties, he would be more rosterable. Diaz hit .293 in those situations last season with seven homers and 34 RBI which was an overwhelming amount of his overall volume last season. He did hit .258 on the road, but struggled to hit lefties in any location while receiving the majority of the time behind the dish for Colorado. Diaz is in the final year of his contract with the Rockies and there are few signs the club is interested in re-signing the veteran backstop whose last above-average offensive season came in 2018. The upside with Diaz would be him catching the perfect storm of contract year breakout combined with late catcher career breakout, but both theories require a bit of Jobu's rum to truly believe in them. The best thing we can say about Diaz is that he starts at catcher and can give you 15-ish homers. Everything else is a dart throw given his numbers over the years.

  • Rockies' Elias Diaz: Sitting out third straight

    Diaz (hand) isn't in the Rockies' lineup for Saturday's game against the Giants. Left hand soreness will cause Diaz to miss his third game in a row Saturday.

Hunter Goodman will start behind the plate and bat eighth while Diaz recovers.

  • Rockies' Elias Diaz: Two-run blast in loss

    Diaz went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Giants. Diaz drove in Colorado's third run of the game with an infield single in the bottom of the fifth and later added a two-run shot in the ninth to bring his team back within two runs of the Giants, though his effort would fall short. It marked the catcher's third multi-hit game already this month, and he's now hit safely in five of his last six contests. The home run was only Diaz's third of the season, though he's now batting .348 in May with four RBI and three extra-base hits.

  • Rockies' Elias Diaz: First homer of 2024

    Diaz went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Friday against the Diamondbacks. He made his lone hit of the game count when he took Merrill Kelly deep in the second inning to tally his first homer of the season. Diaz has hit sixth in each of Colorado's first two games and has two hits across seven plate appearances. The Rockies are reportedly looking to rest the 33-year-old more often in 2024 and have Jacob Stallings on the roster as a reliable defender, so Diaz should be on the bench for one of the series' final two games this weekend.

  • Rockies' Elias Diaz: Could rest more in 2024

    The Rockies hope to rest Diaz more in 2024 after acquiring Jacob Stallings in the offseason, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Diaz earned a career-high 526 plate appearances and suited up in 141 games in 2023, primarily because the Rockies lacked a reliable second catcher. The addition of Stallings gives the team a solid defensive backstop, and Diaz is likely to see less volume as a result. Given his mediocre .725 OPS and .142 ISO from a year ago, his fantasy value is likely to take at least a moderate hit.
