Pirates - Acquired Young
Pittsburgh Pirates - Acquired OF Delwyn Young from the Los Angeles Dodgers for future considerations.
Once it became clear that Young didn’t have a future as second baseman, the Dodgers pretty much lost interest in him. He hung around the Dodgers after some injuries, but played sparingly and started the season back at Albuquerque. Young probably won’t ever be deserving of a starting role, but there’s no reason he can’t be a valuable role player (and play 2B in an emergency) for the next 5-6 years. He’s certainly a better player than Juan Pierre.
For the Pirates, it doesn’t strike me as a great fit, though Young is certainly worth a flier. Young should really be playing in the minors, what with the Pirates having a leftfielder starting in center and, including Young, five outfielders on the roster that should be 4th-5th outfielders.
