Rays sign outfielder Delmon Young

The Tampa Bay Rays signed outfielder Delmon Young to a minor league contract on Thursday. Young has been assigned to Double-A Montgomery.

What is the market for Delmon Young?

  Delmon Young is still a free agent. I know you all hate him, everyone from Minnesota to Detroit, but the fact remains, he is only going to be 27 in 2013, and a career average of .284 with 89 home runs. If someone wants a little bit of pop from the right side of the plate, Delmon has some value. Obviously, this value is limited, but there is SOME. So who will go after him? Let’s...

Did Delmon Young make worst outfield throw ever? (Video)

Detroit Tigers left fielder Delmon Young may have made one of the worst outfield throws in major league baseball history during Game 1 of the 2012 World Series Wednesday night against the San Francisco Giants.
