Description: The Nationals picked up 10 hits and scored seven runs (six earned) in 4 2/3 innings off Twins starter Scott Diamond Sunday.
Insight: Diamond has been shelled for 79 hits and 35 earned runs in 60 2/3 innings. For someone who pitches to contact as much as Diamond, a .350 BABIP is devastating. However, the right-hander's line-drive rate is actually lower than the league average so he should see better luck soon.
 
Cold5/19/2013 11:16:00 AM
Description: Twins starter Scott Diamond allowed six runs in 4 1/3 innings Saturday against Boston and has given up 17 hits and 12 runs in his last two starts.
Insight: Diamond has little margin for error with his 88-89 mph fastball, and he clearly hasn't had his good command over his last two starts. He has walked six batters in that span after walking three in his first five starts combined.
 
5/7/2013 10:17:00 PM
Description: Twins starter Scott Diamond beat the Red Sox with seven scoreless innings Tuesday night. The lefty didn't walk a batter, struck out two and gave up just three hits (all singles).
Insight: Diamond started the season on the DL after having elbow surgery in the offseason and allowed four runs on right hits in 4 1/3 innings in his first start, but he has gotten back to what made him successful last year. He rarely walks anyone (15/3 K/BB in 29 2/3 innings), throws more than 50 percent groundballs, and pitches well with men on base (74.5 LOB%).
 
4/12/2013 6:14:00 PM
Description: Twins lefty Scott Diamond will make his season debut Saturday against the Mets. He said he's good to throw 100 or more pitches if need be, according to Tyler Mason of FOX Sports North.
Insight: Diamond used a 1.61 BB/9, 53.4 percent groundball rate and 73.3 percent strand rate last season to produce a 3.54 ERA. He had surgery to remove bone spurs from his elbow in December and started the season on the DL.
 
3/22/2013 2:13:00 PM
Description: Twins lefty Scott Diamond has been placed on the disabled list and is expected to return in mid-April.
Insight: Diamond had surgery to remove a bone chip from his throwing elbow in December. He was an unexpectedly high quality starter before the All-Star break, going 7-2 with a 2.62 ERA and 1.17 WHIP. After the break he stumbled with a 5-6 record and a 4.31 ERA and 1.298 WHIP.
 
2/27/2013 7:58:00 PM
Description: Twins lefty Scott Diamond is expected to throw his first full bullpen session of the spring on Thursday, according to Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com
Insight: Diamond had surgery to remove a bone chip from his throwing elbow in December. He's expected to be ready for Opening Day after going 12-9 with a 3.54 ERA and 1.24 WHIP last season.
 
12/22/2012 12:22:00 PM
Description: Tyler Mason of Fox Sports North reports that Twins starter Scott Diamond has undergone surgery to remove a bone chip from his left elbow.
Insight: He's expected to make a full recovery by spring training. Diamond was one of Minnesota's most consistent pitchers last season, compiling 12 wins and a 3.54 ERA in 173 innings.
 
9/28/2012 10:55:00 PM
Description: Twins starter Scott Diamond has gotten back on track in his last two starts after allowing 19 runs in a four-start stretch from Aug. 28 to Sept. 16. He took a no decision Friday despite allowing one earned run on six hits in 7 1/3 innings.
Insight: In many years Diamond's 12-8 record and 3.54 ERA might be enough to win the AL Rookie of the Year (Jeremy Hellickson won is last season with 13 wins and a 2.95 ERA), but Mike Trout will prevent that. Still, fantasy owners have benefitted greatly from owning the strike-throwing lefty this season.
 
8/24/2012 9:19:00 PM
Description: Twins starter Scott Diamond has been suspended six games by Major League Baseball for throwing at Texas outfielder Josh Hamilton on Thursday night.
Insight: Diamond is appealing the league's decision so it's possible that he could have his suspension shortened.
 
8/23/2012 9:22:00 PM
Description: Minnesota lefthander Scott Diamond was ejected from Thursday's contest in the third inning after throwing over the head of Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton.
Insight: Diamond threw at Hamilton in retaliation for Roy Oswalt hitting Joe Mauer with a pitch earlier in the game. Twins manager Ron Gardenhire went out to argue and was also tossed. Diamond (10-5, 3.04 ERA) could be suspended for his next start so stay tuned.
 
8/6/2012 10:27:00 PM
Description: Twins starter Scott Diamond won his 10th game of the season Monday with seven strong innings (7 H, 2 ER) against the Indians.
Insight: Diamond (10-5, 2.91 ERA) has succeeded due to stellar control, walking just 16 batters in 114 1/3 innings. There's no reason to expect that will end, even if his ERA does rise a bit by the end of the season.
 
6/24/2012 6:04:00 PM
Description: Twins starter Scott Diamond bounced back with eight innings of three-run ball Sunday against the Reds to win his sixth game of the season. Diamond allowed eight hits, walked one and struck out seven.
Insight: Diamond allowed four earned runs in each of his last two starts after starting out 5-1 with a 1.61 ERA. He got back on track Sunday with a solid effort, though he gives up a ton of hits and doesn't strike out many batters so he should only be owned in deeper leagues.
 
6/19/2012 10:36:00 PM
Description: Twins starter Scott Diamond dropped his second straight start Tuesday against Pittsburgh. Diamond gave up four earned runs on eight hits in 5 1/3 innings. He walked two and struck out one.
Insight: Diamond (5-3) started out 5-1 with a 1.61 ERA in his first seven starts, but he's been tagged for four runs in each of his last two starts. Diamond was 4-1 with a 2.60 ERA at Triple-A Rochester before he was called up this season, but he went 5-19 with a 5.44 ERA combined between Rochester and Minnesota last year.
 
6/3/2012 6:23:00 PM
Description: Twins starter Scott Diamond improved to 4-1 on Sunday against Cleveland. Diamond held the Indians to three runs (zero earned) on seven hits in seven innings. The left-hander walked none and struck out two.
Insight: Diamond has pelted the strikezone in his six starts this season, walking just four batters in 38 2/3 innings. As a result, he's been able to limit the damage despite having hittable stuff. He's worth a look in AL-only and deeper mixed leagues.
 
5/13/2012 5:30:00 PM
Description: Scott Diamond shut out the Blue Jays over seven five-hit innings on Sunday in his second start of the season.
Insight: Diamond (2-0) has thrown two straight outings of seven shutout innings. He's allowed nine hits and walked just one batter while striking out 10 in 14 innings this season.
