Elias Dáz, a catcher, debuted in the majors in 2015. Rene Gayo and Rodolfo Petit, two scouts for the Pittsburgh Pirates, initially acquired his services.
He had a .272/.353/.409 batting line for the VSL Pirates in 2009, and he led all catchers in the league with 51 assists while stopping 45 attempted base stealers.
For the 2010 GCL Pirates, he only batted .218/.280/.310, but he threw out 41% of those who attempted to steal.
His offensive numbers were bad (.221/.279/.328 in ’11,.208/.262/.288 in ’12), and his opponent caught-stealing rate was also noticeably lower (22 percent in ’11, 27 percent in 2012).
He started behind the plate for the 2011–2012 West Virginia Power. With 86 assists in 2012, he did lead all backstops in the South Atlantic League.
Diáz was a backup for the Bradenton Marauders in 2013, but Jacob Stallings won the starting job. In that year, Diáz batted .279/.382/.399 while filling in.
He made his Venezuelan Winter League debut for the Bravos de Margarita, backing up Manny Pina and Henry Blanco while producing at a .256/.373/.326 clip.
He played 100 or more games for the first time in 2014, and he did well. In 101 games split between the Altoona Curve (.328/.378/.445 in 91 G) and Triple-A Indianapolis Indians (.152/.243/.182 in 10 G), he hit .312/.366/.421 with six home runs and 54 RBI. T
