Twins Acquire Oliveros To Complete Young Trade

The Twins acquired righty reliever Lester Oliveros from the Tigers to complete yesterday's Delmon Young trade, announced the team.  The Twins had until October 15th to choose the player to be named later, but they needed less than 24 hours.  They also received lefty Cole Nelson in the deal.

Oliveros, 23, dominated at Double-A this year, earning a promotion to Triple-A in May and to the bigs in July.  He was sent back to Triple-A later that month, but was demoted back to Double-A on Saturday.  Baseball America ranked Oliveros 17th among Tigers prospects prior to the season, noting that he profiles as a middle reliever.

Young got off to a fine start for the Tigers yesterday, homering in his first plate appearance.
