MLB Injury News:
The Minnesota Twins have placed left-hander Scott Diamond on
the disabled list due to an elbow injury, the team has announced.
The @twins officially place LHP Scott Diamond (elbow) & RHP Anthony Swarzak (ribs) on the 15-day DL today

Beyond Diamond, the Twins also placed right-hander Anthony
Swarzak on the DL.
Diamond continues to recover from offseason surgery, during
which he had a bone chip removed from his throwing elbow. At the time of the
procedure, the Twins said they expected Diamond to be ready to return for the
start of the regular season.
However, Diamond has experienced setbacks, and he’s now
aiming to make his regular season debut in the middle of April. The 26-year-old
maintained an ERA of 3.54 with a strikeout-to-walk ratio of 2.90 over 27 starts
for the Twins last season.
Entering the offseason, Diamond was the only pitcher
penciled into the Twins’ starting rotation. Minnesota has since added Vance
Worley, Mike Pelfrey and Kevin Correia.

The Minnesota Twins announced on Friday that they have placed pitchers Scott Diamond and Anthony Swarzak on the 15-day disabled list.
Diamond, who was Minnesotas best starting pitcher in 2012, has been rehabbing his left elbow after having offseason surgery in December. He has yet to pitch in an official Grapefruit League game this spring. When Diamond returns from the DL possibly...
Not the guy cut, but good for effect
The Twins made some cuts today. Most notable among them is outfielder Joe Benson. For more info, click on the link below for the Star Tribune report.

Samuel Deduno, who pitched extremely well at the WBC, suffered a groin injury during the championship game. He is expected to be out for only a couple weeks at most. This will give P.J. Walters a shot at starting today as the Twins take on the Tampa Bay Rays. However, even if Walters does well today, I still think that Deduno earned a shot at the 5th spot in the...
The Minnesota Twins' center field job is officially Aaron Hicks'.
The Twins announced via Twitter on Sunday that manager Ron Gardenhire has named Hicks as the team's center fielder on Opening Day. That means the 23-year-old Hicks will make his major league debut April 1 at Target Field without ever playing a game at Triple A.
Hicks entered camp as perhaps the favorite...
The Twins, they do things differently. One veteran player still can't believe that the team essentially fired bench coach Scott Ulger and hitting coach Joe Vavra at the end of last season ... then turned around and made Ulger the first-base coach and Vavra the third-base coach.
Hey, this is an outfit that fired Bill Smith as general manager after the 2011 season ... then rehired...

Mauer homered to center in a four-run first off Dave Bush and hit a three-run double in the fourth that chased Guillermo Moscoso, who also allowed Morneau...

Happy basketball day part 2! May today go a bit more smoothly than yesterday.
Fangraphs is the first place I’ve seen that doesn’t rate Miguel Sano as the Twins’ top prospect.
You have to dig deep during the tournament.
And another awful GIF from day one of the tournament. Ouch.
Lots of basketball, no important teams.
