Delmon Young Showing Improvement

Sometimes it can be hard to remember that Delmon Young is just 24-years old. He’s currently playing in his fourth full season at the Major League level and his fifth season overall.

Last season, his second with the Minnesota Twins, Young by many standards underperformed. He did however end the 2009 season on a high note, hitting .340 with 4 homeruns and 18 RBI through the months of September and October.

Now halfway through this 2010 season, Young has continued his late-season success, surpassing several of his totals from last year before the end of July.
