The Phils finally have their full everyday lineup intact. With that said, he comes the Young “fat jokes” and whatever else comes to mind. The Phils have not said whether he will be the “DH” tonight or playing right-field yet. If I had to take a wild guess, I would say its a safe bet that he will be the DH tonight.
To make room for Young on the 25-man roster, the Phils designated Ezequiel Carrera for assignment. It will be very interesting to see which “Delmon Young” shows up this year? The one from three years ago (.826 OPS) or the one from last year (.707 OPS).
Young will likely bat 5th, if he plays.
