Edwin Diaz came face-to-face with a big mural of himself in Puerto Rico

Mariners right-handed reliever Edwin Diaz was one of the most dominant pitchers in the game this season, earning the Mariano Rivera AL Reliever of the Year Award for his efforts.

Back in his hometown of Naguabo, Puerto Rico, "El Sugar" (as he's known locally, and as he used for his Players Weekend nickname) is a big deal ... so much so that there's a big mural up paying tribute.  

This weekend, Diaz visited Naguabo and shared a glimpse of the mural on his Instagram Story:

That's almost like looking in a mirror.
