Twins Vs. White Sox Preview: Scott Diamond Returns From Suspension

Scott Diamond will make his first start for the Twins since a six-game suspension on Tuesday against the White Sox.

Diamond was suspended for throwing a retaliation fastball behind Texas Rangers star Josh Hamilton. He'll face a White Sox team that is one game up on the Detroit Tigers in the AL Central standings. The White Sox will send Jose Quintana to the mound.

Diamond only won one of six starts in August, but he has allowed more than three earned runs in just one of his last seven starts. The Twins are 3-10 against Chicago this season after Monday's loss and will look to even the series.

Game Date & Time: Tuesday, Sept. 4, 8:10 p.m. ET


Radio: 1500 ESPN
