Cubs Acquire Minor Leaguer Thomas Diamond

Today the Cubs acquire minor league righty Thomas Diamond from the Texas Rangers. In 2004 Diamond was the 10 overall pick in the draft and in 2007 had Tommy John Surgery. He has not been the same and has been struggling with his command since the injury. He will head to Triple A Iowa Cubs.

In 55.2 innings in the minors Diamond is 2-3 with a 4.20 era and has give up 55 hits, 44 walks and struck out 58 batters. Not to mention he is 26 years old. the Cubs can only hope he can get his stuff back and really help the ball club.

I will keep you posted.
