Scott Diamond off diamond for Twins


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2014) Southpaw Scott Diamond has gone from promising starter to unemployed in less than two years. The 27-year-old was released by the Twins on Wednesday.

Diamond raised a few eyebrows when he compiled a 12-9 record and 3.54 ERA in 2012, but his ERA soared and strikeouts plummeted last season. He punched his ticket out of Minnesota by struggling again this spring.


Battle for final spot in Twins' rotation down to two players


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Scott Diamond runs out of steam vs. Rays


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2014) Twins starting pitcher Scott Diamond made his final case for a rotation spot Thursday against the Rays, and he didn't do himself many favors with a decision looming.

Locked in a four-way battle for the final spot in the rotation, Diamond melted down in his final inning of work. After four scoreless innings to open the game, Diamond fell apart, issuing three walks while recording just one out in the fifth, with all three coming around to score. He was charged with three runs on five hits and three walks, while striking out just one batter in 4 1/3 innings.

Diamond's performance in the spring has put him on the outside looking in for the final spot, according to MLB.com. Diamond has a 5.79 ERA in 14 spring innings, and may end up in the bullpen if he doesn’t snag the spot. 


Scott Diamond pitching himself off diamond for Twins


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/15/2014) Twins southpaw Scott Diamond needed a strong outing Saturday against the Mets to remain in the rotation hunt, but was merely mediocre.

Diamond surrendered two earned runs on three hits in 3 2/3 innings. He was hindered by three walks, but did more than double his spring training output in strikeouts with six.

The 27-year-old has faded since a promising 2012. He was 6-13 with a disturbing 5.43 ERA a year ago with 161 hits and just 52 strikeouts in 131 innings. He has given up six runs in 7 2/3 innings this spring.


Scott Diamond gives up longball in debut


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/1/2014) Twins pitcher Scott Diamond opened his battle for a rotation spot Saturday, in his spring training debut against the Red Sox.

Diamond started the game and pitched the first two innings of a 6-2 win. He allowed one run on two hits and a walk, with that run coming off the bat of Daniel Nava for a solo home run. He struck out two batters, and told FanGraphs.com after the game he felt tight on a few pitches, which restricted his ability to maximize the movement on his pitches.

Diamond appeared in 24 games as a starter last season, posting a 5.43 ERA in 131 innings of work, but was limited early in the season due to elbow surgery. 


Scott Diamond ready to pitch 'right out of the gate'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2014) Twins starting pitcher Scott Diamond is in a much better situation heading into spring training this year than last. He is healthy this time around after coming into camp last year rehabbing from elbow surgery.

Diamond threw his first bullpen session Tuesday and was happy with his performance, per MLB.com.

"Everything went really well, actually," Diamond said. "The curveball was a lot farther along than I thought it would be and the changeup was good. So it was definitely big progress today."

The situation is also a bit different as Diamond will be competing for a spot in the rotation, as opposed to last year when he was guaranteed a spot.

"I came in prepared, or at least as prepared as the offseason allowed me," Diamond said. "I'm ready to pitch right out of the gate from Day 1. It's going to be competitive and fun because of it. I have to take it one day at a time because the more I think about it, the more I get in my own head."


Twins might use starting pitcher candidate in bullpen


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2014) Twins pitchers Samuel DedunoScott Diamond and Vance Worley are all out of options and are fighting for the final spot in the rotation. The Twins will have some tough choices to make, but Minnesota is open to the idea of keeping two of the pitchers on the roster -- one in the rotation and one in the bullpen.

"Anything is possible," Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony said, per The Star Tribune. "We’re going to try to take our best guys, and you don’t want to lose guys who you think can help you but that happens sometimes. They have to pitch themselves on to the team. They have to earn it."
