    Delwyn Young traded to Pittsburgh after putting Juan Castro on Dodgers 40 man roster

    LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers traded switch-hitting outfielder Delwyn Young to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday for two players to be named later or cash considerations.

    The deal was formally announced on Wednesday morning.

    Young was designated for assignment Monday to make room on the 40-man roster for infielder Juan Castro, who was promoted from Triple-A Albuquerque to replace Blake DeWitt, who was optioned to Albuquerque.

    The outfielder had been on the disabled list, still recovering from offseason elbow surgery. He was serving an injury-rehabilitation assignment at Albuquerque.

    Young, 26, was a fourth-round Draft pick in 2002. Except for an injury-rehab stint at Triple-A, Young spent all of 2008 on the Major League club, primarily as a pinch-hitter, batting .246 in 83 games.

    hmmmm...would have been a decent addition to the Reds as a 5th OF (relieving us of Nix...). Oh well, for him, he may get more playing time in PIT.

    With AGon currently Batting 0/16, I'd almost take Castro back

    I too am shocked the guy is still around. Wasn't he with Baltimore last year some?

    I can't explain it, but I've always like Castro. Really good defensively wherever you put him and occassionally he knocks one out...I'm sure I have selective memory in regards to Castro but still....
