Mariners' Diaz set for closer role after WBC experience

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) His exhilarating World Baseball Classic experience over, Edwin Diaz got back to work Sunday in preparation to start the 2017 season as the Seattle Mariners' closer.

But the memories of the WBC and Diaz's time with Team Puerto Rico were still fresh. The young right-hander struck out nine in 5 1-3 WBC innings, earning a win and two saves.

After his two innings of clutch relief in the 11-inning semifinal win over the Netherlands, a fired-up Diaz leaped off the mound in celebration.
