Arizona Diamondbacks

Yilber Diaz found himself stuck at the Arizona Diamondbacks' academy in the Dominican Republic for eight months during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, unsigned and unable to travel home to Venezuela.

While the pandemic delayed his contract with the D-backs, he had to make sure he was in the best shape he could get himself into.
