The Phillies have signed 28-year old switch hitting 2B/OF Delwyn Young to a minor league deal. Young played in 110 games for the Pirates last season and he was 45 of 191 (.236 avg, .700 OPS) with 22 runs scored, 7 homers and 28 RBIs. He has now played in 344 games in his first five years in the majors and he is 183 of 710 (.258 avg, .709 OPS) with 76 runs scored, 17 homers, 81 RBIs and 4 stolen bases. Young is a decent bench player and he will have a good shot of earning a spot on the Phillies’ bench this spring.
