Twins send LHP Diamond, OF Parmelee to minors

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Twins have outrighted left-hander Scott Diamond and outfielder Chris Parmelee to Triple-A Rochester, ensuring that veteran Jason Bartlett will make the team out of spring training.

The Twins announced the moves on Thursday after both Diamond and Parmelee cleared waivers. Diamond had a 5.29 ERA in 17 innings during spring training and lost the competition for the fifth spot in the rotation to right-hander Kyle Gibson.

Parmelee hit .195 with one home run in 41 at-bats and failed to impress while competing for a backup outfielder spot.

The Twins decided to go with Bartlett as the team's utility player. He only had three hits in 38 at-bats this spring while trying to make a comeback. Bartlett sat out all of last season because of injuries.
