Pittsburgh Pirates catcher Elias Diaz (32) hits a RBI single during the fifth inning against the New York Yankees at Lecom Park.

The mother of Pirates catcher Elias Diaz has reportedly been rescued after being kidnapped last week.

Prieto said in a second tweet that he has ordered state police to investigate a police anti-drug team for alleged involvement in the kidnapping. That was followed shortly by five police officers from Zulia being detained in regards to the kidnapping.

The Pirates had confirmed on Thursday that Diaz's mother was missing and said the team was working with Venezuelan officials to secure her safe return.

Venezuelan media reported Thursday that Soto was kidnapped by three armed men at her home in San Francisco, a city located about 430 miles west of the capital Caracas.

Coonelly added that the team was "using all of the resources available.to support Elias and his family during this incredibly hard time".
