Cuban career

Diaz played for the Naranjas de Villa Clara in the 2012-13 Cuban National Series.

In 2013, at 21 years old, Diaz defected from Holguin, Cuba to Monte Cristi, Dominican Republic alongside his childhood friend Leandro Linares and another unnamed individual.[1] He had previously attempted to defect twice, both times which he was caught and arrested by the Cuban government. In August, he signed with the Cleveland Indians for $300,000.[2]

American career Minor Leagues

Díaz played for the Carolina Mudcats of the Class A-Advanced Carolina League in 2014.[3] Playing for the Akron RubberDucks of the Class AA Eastern League in 2015, Díaz was named an All-Star.[4] The Indians promoted him to the Columbus Clippers of the Class AAA International League in September, and assigned him to the Arizona Fall League after the 2015 regular season.[5][6] Díaz began the 2016 season with Akron and was subsequently promoted to Columbus, where he won the International League Rookie of the Year Award.[7]

Cleveland Indians 2017

Díaz earned a non-roster invitation to the Indians' 2017 major league spring training camp. After batting .458 (22 for 48) with a 1.252 OPS during spring training, and after injuries to other players forced the Indians to adjust their roster, Díaz was named the Indians' starting third baseman for the start of the 2017 season.[8][9] Diaz played 49 games, slashing .262/.352/.327 predominately playing third base.

2018

Diaz spent the 2018 season between the Triple-A Columbus Clippers and the Cleveland Indians, playing 39 games and slashing .312/.375/.422 with one home run and 15 RBIs.

Tampa Bay Rays

On December 13, 2018, the Indians traded Díaz to the Tampa Bay Rays in a three-team trade in which the Rays also acquired Cole Sulser for Jake Bauers, and the Seattle Mariners acquired Edwin Encarnación from the Indians for Carlos Santana.[10]

Personal life

His father, Jorge, also defected from Cuba to play professional baseball in the United States. Yandy was six years old when he last saw his father.[11] Diaz is of Afro-Cuban descent.
