We all knew he could strike guys out an incredible rates, but this year, he has taken things to the next level.
Not only does he have an unreal 1.46 ERA in 59.1 innings, but he has struck out an unbelievable 51.3 percent of the hitters he has faced.
He is, without a doubt, the most overpowering reliever in MLB.
Not only that: his on-field success is opening doors for him off it.

Evidently, the talented reliever recently visited the MLB offices and is working on marketing his image.
He is already a role model for young relievers trying to make it to the majors.
For him, it’s time to make his name a more well-known commodity in all spaces, even beyond baseball fans.
One Of The Coolest Entrance Songs You Will Ever See
In New York, he was able to turn around his image of a “choker” after his 5.59 ERA season in 2019: after strong showings after that, he is now the image of a reliable, overpowering closer.
His entrance song is extremely cool, something that fans adore: each time he is about to enter a game, “Narco” by Blasterjaxx and Timmy Trumpet is played.

It’s actually one of the coolest moments in MLB: watching Diaz jog to the mound with that electrifying song and Mets fans fired up about it.
It’s always cool to see MLB players taking advantage of their fame for good purposes.
Diaz’s career is at its finest moment: he had to endure the dark days to find a way to be successful, and he is now enjoying the benefits from his hard work.
Good for him.
