Tampa Bay Rays third baseman Yandy Diaz departed Monday's American League Division Series Game 3 against the Houston Astros due to an injured left foot.

Diaz struck in the bottom of the first inning and played two innings in the field. When his spot came up in the bottom of the second, Matt Duffy pinch-hit for him and remained in the game at third base.

Diaz missed more than two months with a fractured left foot, returning for the final game of the regular season on Sept. 29.

Diaz is hitless in nine ALDS at-bats. He slugged two homers in last Wednesday's wild-card victory over the Oakland Athletics.

The 28-year-old Cuban batted .267 with 14 homers and 38 RBIs in 79 regular-season games.
