Delmon Young off the DL, Rene Tosoni to Triple-A

Delmon YoungThe Minnesota Twins will greet Delmon Young with open arms as he has been removed from the 15-day disabled list that he was placed on after a strained left oblique muscle.

While I can't say Delmon Young is the best batter in the whole world (.228 so far this season), he certainly will improve the teams current line up that is absent of Joe Mauer (out battling the mysterious illness that not even WebMD knows about) and Jim Thome (who I wish was back INSTEAD of Young). Tsuyoshi Nishioka is also on the DL as one of the three regulars (broken leg from a Nick Swisher slide).

To make room on the 25-man roster for Young, the Twins optioned outfielder Rene Tosoni to Triple-A Rochester.

With the Twins last in the majors in scoring, I would say the more regulars we have back on the roster, the better. Now, let's just wait and see if Delmon can become more of the clutch hitter we need instead of the strike-out hitter we know.
