According to MLBTraderumors.com the Dodgers have Designated OF Delwyn Young for assignment. They now have 10 days to trade or release him. Delwyn had great Minor League numbers, but the Dodgers never have been able to fit him in their outfield at the MLB level with similar young talented guys like Matt Kemp and Andre Either, and overpaid vets (Juan Pierre and Andruw Jones) blocking him. He's played mostly LF in the minors, but also has played Right, 2nd, 3rd, and 1st. He was out of options, and with Manny, Pierre, Either, Kemp on the team they decided to release him.

I would think his switch-hitting stick, would be a lot more valuable over the course of the full season than Laynce Nix or Darnell McDonald. Get it done Walt.
