Delmon Young Available?

According to Sid Hartman of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune:

The Twins won’t talk about it, but it’s expected that Delmon Young, the left fielder they obtained from Tampa Bay before this past season, will be made available on the trade market.

It seems an odd time to shop Young, but moving him for a shortstop or third baseman might clear the way for an outfield of Michael Cuddyer, Carlos Gomez, and Denard Span.

Young, 23, hit .290/.336/.405 in 623 plate appearances.  He made some progress in his walk rate, and at least slugged .448 after June 1st.
