FORT MYERS, Fla. — The Minnesota Twins have put left-hander Scott Diamond on the 15-day disabled list as he continues his recovery from arthroscopic surgery on his pitching elbow.

Diamond is projected as one of the team’s top starters this season after going 12-9 with a 3.54 ERA last year.

Right-hander Anthony Swarzak was also put on the 15-day disabled list.
