Scott Diamond drops appeal of ban
The Twins announced Diamond's decision Wednesday, one day after he allowed five runs in seven innings of a loss to the Seattle Mariners. He started serving his suspension on Wednesday and will miss one turn in the rotation.
In a disastrous year for the Twins rotation, Diamond has been the lone bright spot. He is 10-6 with a 3.21 ERA in 21 starts this season, the only Twins starter with an ERA under 4.20.
