KMOX Sports Director Tom Ackerman is in Jupiter, Fla. and was with the team as Cuban shortstop Aledmys Diaz worked out on his first day at Cardinals Spring Training.

This morning Diaz took a few swings in his first batting practice with the St. Louis Cardinals.

While Diaz can work out with the team, at this time he can’t participate in Grapefruit League play yet.

Cardinals General Manager John Mozeliak and Diaz addressed the media today. Mozeliak answered questions about signing Diaz.

Listen to the full press conference below:

Mozeliak will be appearing with Tom Ackerman on Sports Open Line tonight at 6:15 p.m.

Diaz also spoke with the media, through a translator, and explained why he chose to sign with the St. Louis Cardinals.
