Cleveland (Carmona) at Minnesota (Diamond)
Minnesota left-handed pitcher Scott Diamond will make his MLB debut
tonight against the Cleveland Indians (Game 2 of a DH). Diamond was a Rule 5 pick from Atlanta last year and doesn't have much of a biography outside of his minor league stats
. From what we can gather, Diamond was picked up as a free agent out of college and ripped through A-ball (15-3, 2.89 ERA). His Double- and Triple-A numbers however aren't all that impressive, especially the strikeout rate (101 in 148.1 IP at Triple-A). This season, Diamond sports a 4.70 ERA and just 68 strikeouts in 17 starts (92 IP).
