WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE

The Pirates signed Diaz for a modest bonus out of Venezuela when the international signing period opened.  As of June 2017, he hadn’t pitched professionally.

2016
DNP

Diaz did not pitch for unknown reasons, possibly injury.

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

Diaz managed to pitch in brief stints in four games.  Obviously, he ran into serious problems.

The Pirates evidently aren’t giving up on Diaz, as he opened the 2018 season with Bristol.
