Career highlights and awards

Michael Anthony Diaz (born April 15, 1960 in San Francisco, California) is a former Major League Baseball player. He played all or part of four seasons in the majors between 1983 and 1988, for the Chicago Cubs, Pittsburgh Pirates and Chicago White Sox. After starting his career as a catcher, he split his time about equally between first base and the outfield.

Following his major league career, he played four seasons in Japan, from 1989 until 1992, for the Lotte Orions (who in 1992 became the Chiba Lotte Marines). He was nicknamed "Rambo" there due to a perceived resemblance to Sylvester Stallone.[1] In 1990, he became the first foreign player to catch a game in Nippon Professional Baseball in 12 years.[1]
