Delmon Young Activated By Twins; Rene Tosoni Sent Packing

Previously injured Twins outfielder Delmon Young has completed a very brief and very healthy minor-league rehab assignment, and on Friday - as planned - he has been invited back to hang out with all of his buddies.

The Minnesota Twins have reinstated left fielder Delmon Young from the 15-day disabled list.

The Twins announced the move before Friday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays and optioned outfielder Rene Tosoni to Triple-A Rochester to make room on the 25-man roster.

Young hasn't played since April 18, and though he went on the DL with a miserable .566 OPS, he was at .826 a year ago, and the Twins will be counting on him to provide a little thump in the middle of a thumpless batting order. As a team, the Twins have batted just .231 with a .325 slugging percentage and rank last in the league in scoring. They need all the help they can get, and Delmon Young should help.

Rene Tosoni and his .494 OPS did not help while Young was away, so Tosoni's off to the minors, where the 24-year-old will await his chance to make a better impression.
