Elias Diaz went 3-for-4 with two singles, a double, an RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's 13-6 loss to the Padres.
Diaz had a great game at the plate on Sunday, tallying his third multi-hit performance in September. On the year, the 31-year-old is hitting .234 with nine homers and 50 RBIs to go with his .672 OPS. Expect him to continue to get playing time behind the plate for the rest of the season.
Elias Diaz went 4-for-5 with a two-run home run, a walk-off three-run homer, an RBI double and an RBI single in Friday's 13-10 win over the Diamondbacks.
Diaz had a career day at the plate on Friday, falling a triple shy of the cycle while walking it off in the bottom of the ninth. The catcher now has nine homers on the season to go along with 47 RBIs and an OPS of .693. Despite this unreal performance, he cannot be relied on for fantasy production.
Elias Diaz went 1-for-4 with a three-run double in Friday's 7-6 loss to the Mets.
Diaz's clutch bases-clearing double in the eighth gave the Rockies the lead on Friday. The catcher has been a solid option behind the plate when he has been active, recording a hit in five of his last six appearances. However, he doesn't have much fantasy value without a firm grip on the starting spot.
Elias Diaz went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and a double in Tuesday's 7-6 win over the Rangers.
Diaz got the Rockies on the board on Tuesday with his seventh long ball of the season in the second inning. It's encouraging to see the catcher immediately producing upon returning to the field, as he had been out since August 10th with a wrist sprain. The 31-year-old, who is hitting .235 with an OPS of .685 on the season, will likely remain in a committee behind the plate and not warrant any fantasy attention.
Elias Diaz has ligament damage in his hand, but no broken bones after having an MRI Thursday. Dom Nunez is expected to replace him on the roster.
Great news for Diaz and the Rockies that he did not break any bones, but he is likely going to need at least the minimum IL time to recover. The 31-year-old is slashing .230/.294/.371 with six home runs and 33 RBIs this season. Fantasy managers will want to go ahead and prepare to be without Diaz for the time being.
