The Minnesota Twins will move to a six-man starting rotation, with SP Scott Diamond entering the mix. SP Cole De Vries will pitch out of the bullpen.
Fantasy Tip: Diamond should only be an option for those that are truly desperate in AL-only leagues.

Minnesota Twins SP Scott Diamond (elbow) appears to be on track to make his regular season debut near the end of next week, or perhaps next weekend.
Fantasy Tip: Diamond started the season on the 15-day disabled list. He might slide into the fifth starter spot when he is healthy, making him worth a look in deeper AL-only formats.

Minnesota Twins SPs Scott Diamond (elbow) and Anthony Swarzak (ribs) both pitched in extended spring training Tuesday, April 2, and received positive reports. Diamond struck out seven hitters in five innings and will start again for Single-A Fort Myers Sunday, April 7, and could rejoin the rotation by April 12. Swarzak struck out five in four innings Tuesday but isn't expected to return when eligible Saturday, April 6.
Fantasy Tip: Check to see if Diamond is available in AL leagues. Swarzak is more of a long relief option out of the bullpen, so he can be ignored aside from the cavernous AL-only formats.

Minnesota Twins SPs Scott Diamond (elbow) and Anthony Swarzak (ribs) are both making progress from their injuries but are expected to open the season on the disabled list. Diamond will make his first spring start against minor leaguers Monday, March 18, throwing two innings. He's expected to rejoin the rotation in mid-April. Swarzak is throwing bullpens and hasn't had any setbacks, but he needs to be stretched out for his role as a long reliever.
Fantasy Tip: Don't bet on a repeat of Diamond's 2012 performance, but he can still be a solid option for rotation depth in AL-only leagues. Swarzak can be ignored in most formats.
