Twins' Young could fit with Rockies

The Rockies would like to add a young right-handed-hitting outfielder, and one could become available -- Minnesota's Delmon Young.

Young doesn't fit into Minnesota's projected outfield for next year. And the Twins, who are looking for bullpen depth with setup man Pat Neshek expected to miss the season recovering from arm surgery, have made inquiries about right-hander Huston Street.

Young, 23, hit .290 with 10 home runs and 14 stolen bases for the Twins last year, after being acquired in a major off-season trade from Tampa Bay. Manager Ron Gardenhire recently said his Opening Day outfield would most likely be Denard Span, Carlos Gomez and Michael Cuddyer.

    great, another outfielder with no run producing ability. Much more useful than pitching.

    Delmon is a hitting talent. And at 23 he has a lot of upside. The Twins are more focused on defense than other teams and the three incumbant outfielders are much better fielders. Delmon will be a 300 hitter with 20 HR and that is not bad.

    Delmon is a legit player who will hit over 20 homeruns in colorado, and has the ability to steal 20+ bases. Not a bad trade in my mind
