    Cubs claim former first rd pick

    The Cubs confirmed the acquisition via a press release. Diamond was simply claimed off waivers from the Rangers. He'll head to Triple A Iowa.

    The Cubs acquired righty Thomas Diamond from the Rangers, MLBTR has learned. Diamond, the 10th overall pick in the 2004 draft, was designated for assignment Tuesday by Texas. He had Tommy John surgery in '07, and has struggled with his control since. Diamond has worked as a reliever most of this year.

    Final part of the vaunted DVD rotation for Texas of Danks, Volquez and Diamond. Cubs can only hope Diamond turns out as well as the first two.

    Re: Cubs claim former first rd pick

    According to an MLB.com press release, the Chicago Cubs have designated right-hander Thomas Diamond for assignment.
    The Cubs claimed Diamond, a 2004 first round pick, off waivers from Texas earlier this month, after he compiled a 4.20 ERA in Double-A and Triple-A. He did not make an appearance for Chicago, who designated him for assignment to make room on the active roster for outfielder Tyler Colvin.
