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.
Diaz did not pitch for unknown reasons, possibly injury.
Diaz managed to pitch in brief stints in four games. Obviously, he ran into serious problems.
