"Competition brings out the best nature in everybody," Diamond said Monday before pitchers and catchers held the spring's first workout. "I know from my own experience, when I've been put under a little pressure I've always performed my best. I'm looking forward to it. It's going to be interesting to see how it all plays out."
"I'm happy with how it went," Diamond said, "but there's definitely a lot of adjustments I need to make."
