Twins put lefty Diamond on 15-day DL

The Minnesota Twins have put left-hander Scott Diamond on the

15-day disabled list as he continues his recovery from arthroscopic

surgery on his pitching elbow.

Diamond is projected as one of the team’s top starters this

season after going 12-9 with a 3.54 ERA last year.

The Twins also announced right-hander Anthony Swarzak was put on

the 15-day list as he recovers from rib fractures. Swarzak was hurt

in January while wrestling with teammates at a fan festival.
