From Tony Jackson:
Delwyn Young traded to Pirates
dodgers will get two players to be named later, presumably minor leaguers. I assume DY will be placed on the Pirates' active big-league roster. This can only good for DY, who might not play every day but should at least get more playing time than he would with the Dodgers. Plus he and Andy LaRoche are good friends from their Dodgers days.
Just 54 weeks ago, Young was on top of the Dodger world. Now he's a Pirate, and hopefully that'll be a better fit. Sad to see him go, although it seems Dodger management couldn't figure him out: He wasn't given much of a chance to start, yet he didn't have that veteran experience they crave in a bench player. Nonetheless, Young had a good sense of humor about it all (even in rookie hazing drag). Have fun with Andy in Pittsburgh, DY!
