Jose Diaz outrighted

The Kansas City Royals removed former Biscuits pitcher Jose Diaz from their 40-man roster Wednesday. He passed through waivers and will stay with the Kansas City organization.

Diaz came to the Devil Rays with Scott Kazmir in the July 2004 trade with the New York Mets. When Tampa Bay removed him from its 40-man in 2005, the Cleveland Indians claimed him on waivers. The Indians didn't offer him a contract for this year and he signed with the Texas Rangers, who traded him to the Royals in July. Diaz's first organization was the Los Angeles Dodgers.

All I remember is May 26th 2005. He faced 9 batters in the 8th and didn't retire a one. The Line: IP-0 /H-6/r-9/er-9/BB-2/SO-1. Lost that nite 19-2 to Jacksonville.

I remember that inning. Brian Lockwood came on and didn't do much better. Jacksonville scored a mere 13 runs that inning.
