Positions: 2B, SS
Positions (alt): 3B, OF
College: Bellevue University
I consider myself a baseball player with the five tools that can hit for average and can also hit extra bases. Most of my hits in college were balls hit to the opposite field, so I could say that´s one of my strengths. Got an Honorable mention as an infielder in Juco and also was named 2nd team all-conference in the NAIA.
I bring to the table all my baseball skills and all my experience playing this sport at a high level. The past two years Bellevue made it to Nationals and I had a great postseason with them; starting as SS the first year and as a 2B last year.
I did not play outfield in college but I did play it a few years back in my country.
My brother is an MLB player and thanks to him I have been involved in baseball my whole life. I trust my talent because I work hard every day to get better and to reach my maximum potential. I want to make an impact playing in other countries and I am ready to show myself to the world.
- Good contact hitter with occasional power.
- Ability to hit the ball opposite field and smooth hands on defense.
- Arm above average.
- In 4 years combined in college, I batted 212 hits, with 31 doubles, 11 triples, 17 homeruns, and 112 RBI.

Diego is a good kid, been through a lot with the issues in his country, personally, and financially. Has a good baseball IQ as he has learned a lot from his older brother that has had a long professional career that included MLB service with multiple clubs. Not as physically talented as his older brother but was a very good college player that has the ability to continue playing after college due to his work ethic and understanding of the game. I see him eventually being a coach down the road as he pushes the game's limits and grinds.
He grew up in a baseball environment I always took him to my games and he learned a lot in that process so his baseball knowledge is pretty good.
