Former Bearcat hoping for call up to majors
By Steve Seepersaud
We could see a former Binghamton University baseball player in the big leagues sometime this season.
Left-handed pitcher Scott Diamond started this season as a member of the Rochester Red Wings, which, on the baseball ladder, is just one rung below the major-league Minnesota Twins. As of April 24, he had pitched in three games for Rochester, with a win-loss record of 0-1, 3.68 earned run average and 13 strikeouts in a little more than 14 innings pitched.
The Twins acquired Diamond from the Atlanta Braves franchise in December, and traded right-handed pitching prospect Billy Bullock to the Braves in order to keep Diamond within their organization.
During spring training, Diamond allowed one earned run in six innings of work, then missed two weeks - and wasn't ready for opening day - because of a blister on his left thumb.
