Apparently, Delmon's Brinks truck has been re-routed to Florida
DETROIT — Just a week over two years after Delmon Young landed in Detroit as a surprise waiver-trade acquisition, the reigning American League Championship Series MVP was on the move in August again, this time landing in Double A
Young reportedly is signing a minor-league deal with the Tampa Bay Rays — the team that made him the No. 1 overall pick in the 2003 draft — after being waived by Philadelphia last week.
According to Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, Young opted to start out with the Rays’ Double-A affiliate in Montgomery, Ala., rather than report to the Triple-A club in Durham, N.C., the site of his infamous bat-throwing incident.
Young was a free agent in the offseason, following a season plus with the Tigers, where he hit .268 with 26 home runs and 106 RBI. In 22 postseason games with Detroit, Young hit .280 with a franchise record eight home runs and 15 RBI.
