Delmon Young Rumors

8:22pm: Doesn’t sound like the Rays will acquire Delmon Young, but Aaron Gleeman does believe the Twins will move him.

5:49pm: Renck said below that the Rockies had not spoken to teams about Atkins, though LEN3 says they’ve talked to the Twins about him.  Seems that the price is too high for the Twins, anyway.

4:40pm: MLB.com’s Kelly Thesier talked to a source who said it’s highly unlikely the Rays reacquire Young.

3:18pm: Troy Renck says the Rockies have not spoken to teams about Atkins.  But it should be noted that Stark has only speculating with the Rockies portion of the below rumor.

10:53am: ESPN’s Jayson Stark is now speaking of "indications Monday night that Tampa Bay was still talking to the Twins about a deal that would bring outfielder Delmon Young back to the Rays."  Stark speculates that it could be a three-team deal where the Rays ship out Andy Sonnanstine or Edwin Jackson, maybe to Colorado as a means of getting Garrett Atkins to Minnesota.  Stark had a source yesterday saying the Rays would "never" take Young back, but that has apparently changed.

Yesterday, there was quite a bit of chatter about the Phillies doing their homework on Young.  And keep in mind the Rockies had interest too.
