Scott Diamond signs with SK Wyverns

Free Agent left-handed pitcher, Scott Diamond, 30, will be playing his next season in KBO (Korean Baseball Organization) with the SK Wyverns, an announcement was made just today. According to the report, the contract details for Diamond was said to be on a one-year deal worth an estimated 700 million Won (600,000 USD in annual salary), and will be used as a starter for his new team, too, next season. With 3 foreign players (Danny Worth, Merrill Kelly, and Scott Diamond) now in the active roster, the Wyverns have fulfilled the league’s foreign player limit quota, and can no longer acquire more unless one of these players got released in the upcoming year.

The Canadian born Scott Diamond played for 4 years there at the Major league level (with the Minnesota Twins, and Toronto Blue Jays respectively). He currently owns a record of 19-27, and an earned run average of 4.50 in 59 games played (58 games in which he started, 344 innings pitched) in his big league career, primarily as a starter. He appeared in just one game with the Blue Jays this year, making a relief appearance against the Philadelphia Phillies, while giving up a total of 3 earned runs.
