Rockies Designate Eric Young Jr. For Assignment

The Rockies have designated Eric Young Jr. for assignment, according to Troy Renck of the Denver Post (on Twitter).  The move will allow the Rockies to activate right-hander Chris Volstad.

The outfielder posted a .316/.377/.448 slash line in 196 plate appearances last year but hasn't found the same success in 2013.  In 180 PAs this year, the 28-year-old has hit .242/.290/.352 with one homer. Young has experience at all three outfield positions as well as 49 games at second base.
