The Tigers have reportedly parted with lefthander Cole Nelson and a player to be named later to acquire Young.  Nelson was a 10th round draft pick of the Tigers last season, and is 22 and not doing much in the Florida State League.  He is a Minnesota native, for what it is worth.

Young, the former #1 overall pick in the draft, has never lived up to the expectations generated by that lofty selection.  He was originally a Tampa Bay Devil Ray, but was dealt to Minnesota in the deal that brought Matt Garza and Jason Bartlett to Tampa.
