Tampa Bay Rays third baseman Yandy Diaz is not looking forward to his team's upcoming stay at the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee.

"All I want is (to not) have any ghosts in my room," Diaz said, according to the Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin.

Diaz is afraid of ghosts and the Pfister Hotel has a reputation for being haunted.

The hulking infielder's teammates are playing pranks on him ahead of Tampa Bay's series against the Brewers, which begins Tuesday. Topkin reports they taped a print-out of a cartoon ghost to his locker with the message "cuidado," which is Spanish for caution/watch out.

Diaz will apparently stay in a room located in a new section of the hotel that he's been assured isn't haunted.

Baseball players have had many strange encounters at the hotel, where visiting clubs often stay when playing the Brewers.

Philadelphia Phillies star outfielder Bryce Harper said he had a paranormal experience at the site when he played for the Washington Nationals, and Texas Rangers pitcher Jon Gray - a noted ghost hunter - explored the Pfister when he visited as a member of the Colorado Rockies in 2016.
