WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE

The Pirates signed Diaz back in 2015 and were encouraged by a sharp increase in his velocity, but he started having shoulder problems, missing all of 2016 and most of 2017.

2017
DSL:  0-0-0, 38.57 ERA, 6.00 WHIP, 2.1 IP, 30.9 BB/9, 7.7 K/9

Diaz was finally able to get into four games late in the season, but he obviously had a very rough time.

2018
R+:  0-0-1, 6.00 ERA, 2.00 WHIP, 6.0 IP, 4.5 BB/9, 6.0 K/9

Surprisingly, the Pirates sent Diaz to Bristol once the team opened its 2018 season.  He was only able to pitch in five games, none after July 7.

Diaz has barely been able to pitch at all, but may get another shot in 2019.
