Aledmys Diaz Serrano is a Major League Baseball shortstop for the Houston Astros. Before defecting to the United States, he played with the Naranjas de Villa Clara in the Cuban National Series from 2007 to 2012.
In 2014, Diaz signed with the St. Louis Cardinals, and he made his MLB debut in 2016. He’s also a former member of the Toronto Blue Jays.
Diaz, who is from Santa Clara, Cuba, had a .307 batting average, a .397 on-base percentage (OBP), and a .439 slugging percentage in 342 games with the Cuban National Series.
Prior to performing in the United States, he performed in Mexico City for a short time. He was chosen as an All-Star for the National League team as a rookie in MLB, becoming the only player in history to maintain a.500 batting average after 50 at-bats.
Daz grew up in Santa Clara, Cuba, on the same street as future Major League Baseball (MLB) pitcher José Fernández and was friends with him.
Diaz’ father and uncle pushed Fernández’s mother to bring him to the ballpark because they were on the same minor baseball team.
Diaz would not have pursued a professional baseball career if his uncle had not had an influence early in his childhood, according to Fernández.
Diaz played for the Naranjas de Villa Clara, headquartered in Santa Clara, in the Serie Nacional de Béisbol (Cuban National Series), Cuba’s top amateur baseball championship.
In his first season, he went nine for 32 as a utility player in 2007–08. Daz batted .301 with a .403 on-base percentage (OBP) and a .482 slugging percentage (SLG) as a regular infielder at the age of 19 in 2008–09.
With 24 errors, he finished third in the Serie Nacional.
