OTHER PITCHING PROSPECTS IN CAMP
1. David Bromberg, RH: This is his first major league camp. Bromberg was 5-5 with a 3.62 ERA at Class AA New Britain, then 1-4 with a 3.98 ERA at Class AAA Rochester. Throws a knuckle curve. Twins high on his competitiveness.
2. Scott Diamond, LH: A Rule 5 draft pickup who must spend the year with the Twins or be offered back to Atlanta. He was 4-6 with a 3.52 ERA at Class AA Mississippi, then 4-1 with a 3.36 ERA at Class AAA Gwinett County. Has decent stuff across the board.
3. Deolis Guerra, RH: The last remaining player from the Johan Santana trade, Guerra was 2-10 with a 6.24 ERA at Class AA New Britain and 0-3 with a 6.84 ERA at Class AAA Rochester. He hasn't put it all together.
4. Jeff Manship, RH: He has pitched 60 innings with the Twins, going 2-1 with a 5.28 ERA in 13 MLB games last season. He's blocked from the major league rotation, and other prospects are gaining on him.
5. Anthony Swarzak, RH: He went 5-12 with a 6.21 ERA at Rochester last season after going 3-7 with the Twins during stint in 2009. Good curve. He's in a similar situation as Manship; the time is now for both of them.
