    Scott Diamond runs out of steam vs. Rays

    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

    Twins southpaw Scott Diamond needed a strong outing Saturday against the Mets to remain in the rotation hunt, but was merely mediocre.

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

    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.
