Pirates Acquire Delwyn Young

1:07pm: Jen Langosch of MLB.com says the Pirates designated lefty reliever Dave Davidson for assignment to make room for Young.  Langosch also has GM Neal Huntington's take on the acquisition in her blog post.

7:17am: According to Dylan Hernandez of the L.A. Times, the Pirates acquired outfielder Delwyn Young from the Dodgers for two minor league players to be named later.  Young had been designated for assignment on Monday.  Young, 26, hit .246/.321/.341 last year at Triple A but .337/.384/.571 in '07.  He dealt with a strained oblique last year and began this season with an elbow issue.

Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette notes that the Dodgers had been offering Young to the Pirates as part of the Jack Wilson talks during the offseason.
