PHOENIX (AP) - Backup infielder Aledmys Díaz went to arbitration with the Houston Astros, who offered the same $2 million salary he earned last year. Díaz asked for a raise to $2.6 million. Díaz was acquired from Toronto in November 2018. He hit .271 for the AL champions with nine homers and 40 RBIs in 247 plate appearances over 69 games. He was 0 for 9 with a walk in the postseason. Teams are 6-1 against players this year. A decision is pending for first baseman Jesús Aguilar, and four players remain scheduled for hearings this week.
