Fort Myers, FL (Sports Network) - The Minnesota Twins announced on Friday
that pitchers Scott Diamond and Anthony Swarzak have been placed on the 15-day
The news comes just over one week before Opening Day, as both pitchers aren't
expected to be ready for the start of the season.
The left-handed Diamond had a bone chip removed from his elbow in December and
appeared in his first spring training action on Tuesday, lasting two scoreless
innings in a contest versus Triple-A Pawtucket.
Swarzak, 27, threw a live bullpen session on Friday, his second this spring,
but is expected to appear in a minor league contest sometime next week. The
team said there is no official timetable for the right-handed reliever.
