Scott Diamond
Jul 18: Diamond signed a minor league contract with the Reds on Friday and was assigned to Triple-A Louisville. The 27-year-old lefty was unceremoniously released by the Twins late last week, after he posted a 6.52 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in 17 appearances (15 starts) with their Triple-A Rochester affiliate. Cincinnati will bring him aboard for organizational depth.

Jul 12: Diamond was released by the Twins on Saturday, LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. In 17 outings (15 starts) at Triple-A Rochester this season, Diamond posted a dreadful 6.53 ERA, 1.625 WHIP, and 47:22 K:BB in 80 frames. The soon-to-be 28-year-old will likely be limited in his options, though a minor league contract could very well be in his future.

Mar 27: Diamond was outrighted to Triple-A Rochester on Thursday. Upon clearing waivers, Diamond was formally booted from the 40-man roster and will head to Rochester to begin the season. Diamond was knocked around to the tune of 20 hits and 10 earned runs in 17 innings this spring, falling well short in the competition with Kyle Gibson for the final rotation spot.

Mar 26: Diamond has been put on waivers as the Twins attempt to send him to Triple-A Rochester, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Diamond lost the fifth starter battle to Kyle Gibson as a result. Diamond had a 5.29 ERA with a 13:10 K:BB ratio in 17 innings this spring.

Mar 26: Diamond threw three scoreless innings with a strikeout and no walks in Tuesday's spring training win over Baltimore to stay in contention for a spot in the bullpen or the fifth starter role, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. He has a 5.29 ERA with a 13:10 K:BB ratio in 17 innings this spring. Diamond is nominally competing with Kyle Gibson for the fifth starter role, but Gibson has outperformed him this spring and it's widely expected Gibson will win the job. Diamond could win a spot in the bullpen as he's out of minor league options and the Twins may be fearful of losing him to another team if the send him to Triple-A.

Mar 20: Diamond gave up three runs on five hits with three walks over 4.1 innings in Thursday's spring training loss to Tampa Bay. His spring ERA rose to 5.79. Diamond was a long shot to win the fifth starter role, but he he's had a poor spring and looks set to begin the season at Triple-A. He has shown an increased strikeout rate (12 K in 14 innings), so there's some hope he can bounce back in the minors.

Mar 15: Diamond gave up three runs (two earned) over 3.2 innings with six strikeouts and three walks in Saturday's spring training tie with the Mets. Diamond is still behind Samuel Deduno for the competition for the fifth starter role -- along with Kyle Gibson -- as he hasn't been overly impressive this spring with a 5.59 ERA. However, Diamond has 11 strikeouts in 9.2 innings, which is a significant increase from his recent history and worth watching, even if he begins the season at Triple-A.

Mar 11: Diamond appears to be behind Samuel Deduno and Kyle Gibson early in the competition for the fifth starter role, MLB.com reports. He's given up six runs (two earned) over six innings this spring. It would be an upset if he won the battle for the fifth starter role against Deduno, Gibson and Vance Worley even as the only left-handed starter in the group. More likely, he'll begin the season at Triple-A and could get another shot at the rotation this summer. However, he could be pitching in another organization as he's out of minor league options.
