  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Opens season on 60-day IL

    The Athletics placed Diaz on the 60-day injured list Thursday with a right calf strain.

    Diaz was able to resume light baseball activities at the tail end of spring training and is set to begin jogging this week, but he's not close to being ready for game action. Diaz should be on track to return when he's first eligible to come off the IL in late May and serve as a utility player for Oakland.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Still limited in activity

    Diaz (calf) remains limited in his baseball activities and is still without a timetable for return, Jason Burke of SI.com reports.

    Diaz figures to need a rehab assignment of fairly lengthy duration whenever he is ready to begin ramping up, considering the calf strain he's currently dealing with occurred while rehabbing a groin strain. The combination of the two injuries adds up to nearly a month, and counting, of absences from game action, and Diaz appears to still be multiple weeks away from stepping back into a batter's box.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: IL stint expected

    Athletics manager Mark Kotsay said Monday that Diaz (calf) is likely to begin the season on the injured list, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Diaz suffered a calf strain while rehabbing from a groin strain last week and won't be ready to resume a running program until later this week. He won't have enough time to fully ramp up ahead of Opening Day, even if he avoids another setback. In addition to the injury, Diaz's playing-time outlook also took a hit with the Athletics' recent addition of J.D. Davis.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: No baseball work yet

    Diaz (calf) has yet to resume baseball activities as of Sunday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    The veteran infielder suffered a calf strain while rehabbing from a groin strain last week, and he hasn't played in spring games since late February. Diaz still needs to start a running progression and appears poised to begin the season on the injured list.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Suffers calf strain

    Diaz (groin) suffered a calf strain recently while running the bases, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Diaz has been rehabbing a groin strain and now has a new injury to deal with. He's played just two Cactus League games to this point and can now probably be ruled out for the rest of the spring, with a stint on the injured list to begin the season likely. Once healthy, Diaz is expected to be in the mix primarily at third base and shortstop.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: May take minor-league at-bats

    Diaz (groin) continues to ramp up baseball activities and could take minor-league at-bats this coming week, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Diaz has been progressively building back up from the groin strain he sustained before a Feb. 28 Cactus League game. If he's indeed able to begin logging at-bats again at minor-league camp in the next few days, his chances of being ready for Opening Day on March 28 would seemingly increase.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Cleared for baseball activities

    Athletics manager Mark Kotsay said Wednesday that Diaz (groin) has been cleared to resume baseball activities, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Diaz was diagnosed with a left groin strain Feb. 29 and will face an uphill battle to get fully healthy in advance of Opening Day, but the fact that he's taking part in baseball activities just one week after suffering the injury at least bodes well for his chances of avoiding an extended absence to begin the season. He remains without a definitive timeline to re-enter the Athletics' Cactus League lineup, however.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: IL stint looking likely

    Athletics manager Mark Kotsay said Friday that it would be "optimistic" to think Diaz (groin) could return before the end of the Cactus League schedule, MLB.com reports.

    Diaz is dealing with a strained left groin and is expected to miss at least the next 2-to-3 weeks of action. Barring a rapid recovery, it sounds like an injured list stint should be expected. Diaz is competing for Oakland's third base job, but his injury opens up more chances for Darell Hernaiz, Jordan Diaz and Brett Harris.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Battling groin strain

    Athletics manager Mark Kotsay said that Diaz has been diagnosed with a left groin strain following an MRI on Wednesday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Though the groin strain has been confirmed, the Athletics are still awaiting the results of the MRI to determine the severity of the injury. Diaz, who slashed .229/.280/.337 over 344 plate appearances in his first season with Oakland in 2023, is projected to serve as a utility player during the upcoming campaign.

  • Athletics' Aledmys Diaz: Scratched from lineup

    Diaz was scratched from the lineup for Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Giants due to left hip soreness, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Diaz had been slated to play third base against the Giants, but now those duties will fall to Jordan Diaz. Consider Diaz day-to-day for the time being.

  • 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.
