Diamond said his starts will continue to be on the Minor League side. Will go on DL to open year with April 12 as targeted return date.

Diamond said after yesterday’s game that he is aiming to
make his regular season debut on April 12, meaning he’ll start the year on the
Twins’ disabled list. The southpaw underwent surgery in December to remove bone
spurs from his throwing elbow.
It was reported last month that Diamond was iffy for Opening Day. He was running behind schedule in his rehab, and the Twins had no interest
in rushing the young left-hander.
Diamond was one of the lone bright spots for the Twins last
season. The 26-year-old maintained an ERA of 3.54 over 27 starts with a
strikeout-to-walk ratio of 2.90.
With Diamond heading for the shelf, the Twins will turn to
offseason acquisition Vance Worley to take the mound Opening Day when the they
face off against the Detroit Tigers.

Samuel Deduno pleaded with Tony Pena to leave him in the game - the outing of his life, his country across his chest.
Pena stuck with the demonstrative Dominican Republic right-hander - with his island nation's World Baseball Classic hopes hanging on that managerial move. Deduno made Pena change his mind, and he never changes his mind.
The pitcher did his part by striking out...
