May 12 - 1:31 PM

Blue Jays placed INF Aledmys Diaz on the 10-day disabled list with a left ankle sprain.

Diaz injured the ankle while legging out an infield hit during Sunday's game. X-rays came back negative, but he'll still require an extended absence. The Blue Jays called up infielder Richard Urena to take his place on the active roster. Lourdes Gurriel Jr. replaced Diaz in Sunday's game and is also an option for shortstop duties.
May 8 - 3:38 PM

X-rays on Aledmys Diaz's left ankle came back negative, but he's still set to undergo an MRI.

The Blue Jays are calling the injury a sprain for now, and the MRI should give us a better idea than the X-ray as to the severity. Diaz injured the ankle while running through first base Sunday.
May 6 - 3:09 PM

Aledmys Diaz departed Sunday's game against the Rays with an apparent left ankle injury.

Diaz went down as he crossed first base and was in a lot of pain. It looked like an injury that will likely send him to the disabled list, but the Blue Jays should offer an update after the game.
May 6 - 2:36 PM

Aledmys Diaz clubbed his sixth home run of the season as the Blue Jays fell to the Rays on Friday night in Tampa Bay.

It's the second straight game in which Diaz has left the yard. His solo shot off of Sergio Romo pulled the Jays to within two runs at 4-2 in the eighth, but that would be as close as they would get. He finished the night 1-for-3 and is now hitting .196/.257/.412 with six homers and 12 RBI on the season.
May 4 - 9:57 PM

Aledmys Diaz hit a solo home run in the nightcap of Thursday's doubleheader against the Indians.

A throwaway solo shot in the eighth inning of a 13-2 game, there won't be much celebrating of Diaz's fifth homer of the year. Still, it was surely a welcome development for the 27-year-old, who hadn't homered since April 13. In 29 games, Diaz is hitting .191/.255/.383 and is at risk of being relegated to a bench role by hot-hitting Yangervis Solarte and prospect Lourdes Gurriel.
May 4 - 12:50 AM

Aledmys Diaz went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer, a stolen base, and two runs scored Friday against the Indians.

Diaz tied things up with his blast off Mike Clevinger in the fourth inning. He’s now homered in back-to-back games, bringing his total to four for the year. The 27-year-old showed some good patience as a rookie with the Cardinals in 2016, but his walk rate was essentially slashed in half last year and he’s still looking for his first walk this season. He's the primary shortstop with Troy Tulowitzki (heels) sidelined, but his fantasy stock has faded.
