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: Resting Sunday

    Diaz is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mets. Diaz will get a breather in the Rockies' final game before the All-Star break, affording Jacob Stallings a turn behind the dish. Upon returning from the injured list June 30, Diaz had started in 12 of the Rockies' ensuing 14 games, going just 11-for-50 (.220 average) with two extra-base hits (both doubles), two RBI and one run over that stretch.

  • Rockies' Elias Diaz: Receiving afternoon off

    Diaz is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Reds. Diaz will receive a breather for Thursday's day game after he went 2-for-4 with an RBI while catching all nine innings of the Rockies' 6-5 win Wednesday night. Hunter Goodman will handle the catching duties for Colorado.

  • Rockies' Elias Diaz: Not in Sunday's lineup

    Diaz is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals, Luke Zahlmann of The Denver Gazette reports. The 33-year-old started all seven games since he returned from the injured list last weekend, though he's still experienced a bit of tightness in his calf since being activated and hasn't pushed himself while running the bases. There's been no report that Diaz has further aggravated the injury, so his absence from the lineup Sunday is likely just a maintenance day. Jacob Stallings is receiving a turn behind the plate in the series finale.

  • Rockies' Elias Diaz: Calf remains tight

    Diaz said his calf is still a little bit tight Thursday, which is why he's not sprinting full out on the bases, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports. Diaz was reinstated from the 10-day injured list June 30 after nursing a left calf strain. Since his return, the catcher is 6-for-18 with two doubles. However, it appears the calf injury is still lingering, as the 33-year-old says he will be careful about it.

  • Rockies' Elias Diaz: Two hits in return

    Diaz went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored Sunday against the White Sox. Diaz was activated from the injured list after three weeks and returned to serve as the designated hitter while hitting fifth. He collected a hit in his first plate appearance, showing no signs of rust. Diaz's return will likely push Jacob Stallings into a backup role and could end consistent playing time for Hunter Goodman.

  • Rockies' Elias Diaz: Activated, serving as DH on Sunday

    The Rockies reinstated Diaz (calf) from the 10-day injured list Sunday. He'll serve as the Rockies' designated hitter and will bat fifth in Sunday's series finale versus the White Sox, according to Luke Zahlmann of The Denver Gazette. Colorado designated infielder Elehuris Montero for assignment to clear room on the active roster for Diaz, who returns to action after missing just under three weeks with a left calf strain. Though he'll operate as the Rockies' DH in his first game back, Diaz should soon settle back into primary duties at catcher, leaving fewer opportunities to go around for Jacob Stallings and Hunter Goodman.

  • Rockies' Elias Diaz: Drawing closer to return

    Diaz (calf) ran on the field Friday and Saturday and has made good progress in his recovery, MLB.com reports. Manager Bud Black seemed to offer a more positive outlook on Diaz's recovery than in recent days, though Black still declined to offer a timetable for Diaz's return. Positively, the manager suggested that Diaz will not need a rehab assignment before being activated from the injured list.

  • Rockies' Elias Diaz: Not close to return

    Manager Bud Black said Tuesday that Diaz (calf) will be out for at least another week, MLB.com reports. Diaz has resumed baseball activities but is not sprinting at full speed and is still experiencing some soreness. The Rockies have stressed the importance of Diaz returning at full strength, so his absence could extend into the middle of July. Jacob Stallings should remain the team's primary catcher in the meantime.

  • Rockies' Elias Diaz: Resumes jogging

    The Rockies cleared Diaz (calf) to resume jogging Monday, MLB.com reports. While Diaz looks to be making some progress in his recovery from the left calf strain that forced him to the injured list last Friday, he's still on track to spend more than the minimum 10 days on the shelf. The Rockies haven't yet provided a target date for Diaz's return from the IL, and Jacob Stallings should serve as Colorado's top backstop until Diaz is back in action.

  • Rockies' Elias Diaz: Not yet running

    Diaz (calf) hasn't resumed running since landing on the 10-day injured list Friday, MLB.com reports. Diaz is no longer walking with a limp, but he hasn't yet made enough progress in his recovery from a left calf strain to resume on-field work. The veteran backstop is without a clear target date for a return from the IL, and fantasy managers shouldn't count on him returning at any point during the Rockies' upcoming seven-game week.

  • Rockies' Elias Diaz: Lands on IL with calf strain

    The Rockies placed Diaz on the 10-day injured list Friday due to a left calf strain, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.. Diaz was removed in the bottom half of the first inning of Monday's game against the Twins after straining his left calf while running to first base. He was held out for the rest of that series in the hopes he would be available for a weekend set against Pittsburgh, but instead the 33-year-old heads to the IL. Jacob Stallings got the start at catcher the last two games, and he figures to see most of the action behind the plate while Diaz is sidelined, though Hunter Goodman will provide some depth and will start at catcher for Saturday's game, per Patrick Lyons of JustBaseball.com.

  • Rockies' Elias Diaz: Remains out Wednesday

    Diaz (calf) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game in Minnesota. As expected, Diaz will get another day to rest his left calf injury. The hope is that he will be ready to play Friday in Denver versus the Pirates following the Rockies' off day Thursday, but his availability for the weekend isn't guaranteed. Jacob Stallings will start at catcher Wednesday.

  • Rockies' Elias Diaz: Held out Tuesday

    Diaz (calf) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game in Minnesota. Diaz tweaked his left calf in Monday's loss to the Twins and the expectation is that he won't be available for the remainder of the series. Jacob Stallings will do the catching Tuesday.

  • Rockies' Elias Diaz: Likely out for Minnesota series

    Rockies manager Bud Black suggested after Monday's 5-0 loss to the Twins that Diaz will likely miss the remaining two games of the series in Minnesota due to a strained left calf, MLB.com reports. "It's right in the belly of the calf, so we'll see," Black said of the injury Diaz suffered in the first inning of Monday's game. "He's been feeling it for a couple weeks. He's been able to manage it and [in Monday's game], I think just on that particular ground ball, out of the box, it got him. We'll see in a couple of days. Keith [Duggar, the team's head athletic trainer] wants to treat it for a day or two and see where we are." Diaz was lifted from the game in the bottom of the first after he strained his calf while running out a groundball in his first at-bat of the night in the top of the frame. Jacob Stallings came on to replace Diaz and will presumably start behind the plate for the final two games in Minnesota, and Stallings could be headed for an extended run as the Rockies' No. 1 catcher if Diaz requires a stint on the injured list. Diaz will presumably be re-examined Thursday when the Rockies return to Colorado before the team makes a decision on his availability heading into this weekend's series versus the Pirates. Diaz has been one of the few bright spots for the Rockies this season, batting .303 with five home runs, 28 RBI and 20 runs in 55 games.

  • Rockies' Elias Diaz: Nursing calf issue

    Diaz left Monday's game against the Twins due to a left calf injury, Luke Zahlmann of The Denver Gazette reports. Diaz is likely undergoing additional testing to uncover the extent of the calf injury. Jacob Stallings and Hunter Goodman would share time behind the plate if it's determined Diaz requires an extended absence, though it's still too early to know if he'll be placed on the injured list.

  • Rockies' Elias Diaz: Exits early Monday

    Diaz (undisclosed) was removed from Monday's contest against the Twins, Luke Zahlmann of The Denver Gazette reports. Diaz pulled up lame on a groundout in the top of the first inning, being replaced at catcher by Jacob Stallings prior to the bottom of the frame. The team will likely provide an update to Diaz's status following Monday's series opener.

It's the third multi-hit effort in four games for Diaz -- he's gone 7-for-16 in that span. The 33-year-old backstop is off to another strong start this year, slashing .306/.351/.452 with five homers, 27 RBI and 20 runs scored through 202 plate appearances.
