Twins May Look To Swing Trade With Braves For Diamond

That's an interesting headline, but I'm talking about former Braves prospect, pitcher Scott Diamond, who was a rule five draft pick this year. The Twins would have to keep him on their 25-man Major League roster all season in order to keep him in their organization, or offer him back to the Braves (there's a small amount of cash involved). A Twins beat writer tweets his opinion of the Twins thinking:

Rule 5 pick Scott Diamond is a polished LHP. would like to keep him but might work trade with Atlanta to send him to AAA Roch.

Last year the Braves lost Edgar Osuna to the Royals in the rule five draft, but when the Royals offered him back after he failed to make the team in spring training, the Braves strangely declined.

Diamond is a more polished pitcher than Osuna was (no pun intended), so the Braves may be able to get something for him in return from a deep Minnesota farm system.
