Edwin Diaz welcomes his third child: Lucas Jose

The Puerto Rican closer of the New York Mets Edwin “Sugar” Diaz announced on Thursday the arrival of his third child in the midst of his preparation in the spring camps in Port St. Lucie, Florida, to return to the Major Leagues.

Diaz, 29, shared the photo of Lucas Jose, the product of his marriage to Nashaly Mercado, on the Instagram social network.

“I want to welcome my third and beautiful son Lucas Jose. Thank you God for giving me the opportunity to be a father again. Super happy and proud, Nashaly. I love you a lot. “You are a warrior,” Diaz wrote alongside a video of the little boy in the hospital.

The couple has two other children: Jahel and Sebastian.

Diaz is preparing to return to the Majors after missing the 2023 season due to surgery on his knee, injured during the World Baseball Classic last March. In December 2022, the reliever signed a five-year, $102 million contract with the Mets.

Diaz made his successful preseason debut last Monday, fanning three Miami Marlins batters.
