PORT ST. LUCIE — As he reported to camp last week, Edwin Diaz declared that he thinks he “will be the same guy” this season. Through first swings and then words, his teammates confirmed as much Friday.

Corey Sipkin for the NY POST Against some of the club's top hitters, Diaz induced five whiffs on eight swings at Clover Park, leaving his teammates buzzing.
