Scott Diamond yielded two runs and four hits in two innings of relief Tuesday against the Rays.
Diamond is one of the Twins pitchers out of options and battling for a roster spot, whether it's the lone rotation opening or a place in middle relief. He seems like a long shot to make the club, but as much as he struggled last season, he might clear waivers anyway.
Brandon Beachy (elbow) will miss his next scheduled Grapefruit League start.

And the absence could extend beyond that. Beachy left his Grapefruit League outing Monday against the Phillies after experiencing soreness in his right elbow and biceps, and he's now undergoing a range of tests. The right-hander is obviously in danger of missing a chunk of the 2014 regular season. This has not been a smooth camp for the Braves' starting rotation.
Yunel Escobar went 2-for-3 with a double on Tuesday to raise his spring average to .500.
Escobar is 7-for-14 with a couple of walks this spring. Of course, he's one of those players who happens to be much more valuable in real baseball than fantasy leagues. He's finished with averages in the .250s three of the last four years, and he's never been a big homer or steal guy. Last year, he finished with nine homers, four steals, 61 runs scored and 56 RBI in 153 games.
