Blue Jays optioned INF Jonathan Diaz to Triple-A Buffalo.

The Jays needed to make room for first baseman Chris Colabello and Diaz was one of the corresponding roster moves. Diaz had been called up to replace Jose Reyes (rib) on the active roster in late April, but only saw a few at-bats. He'll serve as minor league depth until the Jays need him again.

Blue Jays purchased the contract of INF Jonathan Diaz from Triple-A Buffalo.

He'll replace the injured Jose Reyes (rib) on the active roster. Diaz, 30, hit .158 (6-for-38) over 23 games with the Blue Jays last season and will provide some infield depth.
Apr 28 - 10:09 AM

Jonathan Diaz has elected free agency.

The 29-year-old utilityman appeared in just 23 games for the Jays during the 2014 season, hitting a minuscule .158/.256/.184 in 38 at-bats. He'll look to find another situation where he can compete for a reserve role on a minor league deal.

Blue Jays optioned INF Jonathan Diaz to Triple-A Buffalo.

Diaz was batting .176/.282/.206 in 41 plate appearances this season for the Jays. The versatile 29-year-old should get another shot at some point in 2014.

Jonathan Diaz went 1-for-3 and drove home a pair of runs in Friday’s loss to the Yankees.

Diaz drove home two runs with an RBI single in the second inning to put the Jays ahead 3-2, but that would be the extent of their offense on the night. The 28-year-old infielder has been acting as the Jays regular shortstop since Jose Reyes went down with a hamstring injury, and is hitting .250/.333/.250. Outside of deep AL-only leagues, he isn’t relevant.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons indicated Tuesday that Jonathan Diaz will be the team's primary shortstop while Jose Reyes (hamstring) is out.

Toronto also has Ryan Goins and Maicer Izturis available to play short, but Gibbons views Diaz as the best defensive shortstop of the three. "All three guys will play," he said. "The thinking behind that is we want to throw our best defense out there and Diaz is the best shortstop we've got out there, he's really good out there." Diaz started at shortstop Tuesday and had an RBI single and a stolen base. However, he's a career .230/.358/.297 hitter in the minors and doesn't figure to have much fantasy value even in deeper leagues.

Diaz, who will turn 29 in a couple weeks, made it up for four at-bats with the Red Sox last season. He's a career .230/.358/.297 hitter in the minors, but he can play all over the infield and will provide depth with Jose Reyes out.
