Also, the Drillers placed reliever Marshall Kasowski on the injured list.

Diaz, who has struggled most of the season for Bowie (Orioles), batted .364 with three homers and 12 RBIs last week. Amarillo infielder Owen Miller won the TL hitter award after batting .565 last week. Miller and his teammates will make their first visit to Tulsa for a series Thursday through Sunday and Miller will stay in Tulsa for the TL All-Star Game on June 25.

Family ties: Drillers pitcher Jordan Sheffield’s brother, Justus, is now in the Texas League with Arkansas. Justus Sheffield is the Seattle Mariners’ top pitching prospect.
