Rays signed LHP Scott Diamond to a minor league contract.

Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that the Twins have placed left-hander Scott Diamond on waivers.

Diamond, who is out of options, lost out to Kyle Gibson for the final spot in Minnesota's rotation. The 27-year-old has enjoyed some success in the past, but he's coming off an awful 5.43 ERA and 52/36 K/BB ratio over 131 innings last season.

Scott Diamond yielded two runs and four hits in two innings of relief Tuesday against the Rays.

Diamond is one of the Twins pitchers out of options and battling for a roster spot, whether it's the lone rotation opening or a place in middle relief. He seems like a long shot to make the club, but as much as he struggled last season, he might clear waivers anyway.
Tue, Mar 11, 2014 04:10:00 PM

Scott Diamond allowed four runs on nine hits, including three home runs, over 6 1/3 innings in a loss to the Tigers on Tuesday.

Diamond was victimized by Tigers hitters for three home runs and all four runs in the fourth inning, as Victor Martinez, Omar Infante and Austin Jackson took him deep. The lefty walked just one while striking out three. The loss dropped him to 6-12 with a 5.54 ERA this season, and he's in line for another rough afternoon in the Twins' season finale against the Indians on Sunday.
