Orioles' Buck Showalter: Delmon Young 'is an option for us in the OF'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) Orioles designated hitter Delmon Young is welcoming more at-bats and opportunities to play in the outfield this spring. On Wednesday, he cranked out three hits, including a home run against the Blue Jays.

"Delmon's a better outfielder than people give him credit for," manager Buck Showalter said, per MASN Sports. "He's running as good as he ever has. He came in here with that in mind, to remind us.

"I was looking at his grades the other day when he came out as a free agent. He's running like that again, he's throwing. He's an above-average thrower.

"Delmon is an option for us in the outfield. He's not a pure DH and that was one of the reasons why we wanted to bring him back. He's a little better out there than people think he is. It may not always look aesthetically pleasing, but tell me one time last year where you went, 'Wow, that really hurt.' He takes a lot of pride in it."


Orioles likely to use a combo of players to replace Markakis in RF


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2015) Orioles manager Buck Showalter is expecting to use a few players in right field to replace Nick Markakis, who signed a free-agent deal with the Braves in the offseason.

"We're equipped to have that be a two- or three-headed player," Showalter said of the Orioles' right-field situation which could include a combination of Travis SniderSteve PearceDelmon YoungAlejandro De Aza and Chris Davis, per MLB.com. "It also allows us to keep everybody in the flow and have everybody make contributions with their skill set. But somebody steps out there and takes off with it … that's why I think Steve [Pearce] graduated a little bit from that [role as a part-time player]."


Orioles DH Delmon Young preparing for outfield role


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2015) Orioles designated hitter Delmon Young is preparing for a bigger role this season and has asked to play right field in minor-league games when he doesn't travel with the team during the spring, MLB.com reports.

"Going back to right field, that's where I spent most of my time my whole life," Young said. "Having platoon splits and everything, I don't mind going back to right field. Left field, I don't too much care to be over there, but right field is a lot more comfortable. It's where I played, where I have most of my reps at in the minor leagues."

Young signed a one-year, $2.25-million deal to remain in Baltimore this season after hitting .302/.337/.442 with seven home runs and 30 RBI in 242 at-bats last year. The team will have ample playing time available to distribute with the departures of Nelson Cruz and Nick Markakis this offseason.


Orioles outfielder Delmon Young could see more playing time


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/10/2015) Orioles outfielder Delmon Young could see more playing time this season, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Executive vice president Dan Duquette said the team was happy with Young's contribution in a part-time role in 2014, but added that Young could see his playing time increase this year. "Depending on how the team is structured, he could have a more vital role this season," Duqette said. 

The Orioles are still looking to for a replacement for Nelson Cruz, and Young could be used to take some of those at-bats. The club has also flirted with Colby Rasmus, but nothing has been accomplished on that front.

Young hit .302/.337/.442 in 242 at-bats last year. 


Orioles officially sign Delmon Young


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/9/2015) The Orioles have announced the signing of outfielder Delmon Young on a one year deal.

The two sides came to an agreement in December, but the deal was contingent on a physical. Young passed the physical, and is officially a member of the club. He's set to make $2.25 million next season, and can earn up to $750,000 in incentives. 

Young hit .302/.337/.442 in 242 at-bats last year.


Orioles, Delmon Young agree to one-year deal


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/24/2014) The Orioles have agreed to a one-year deal with outfielder Delmon Young worth $2.25 million, CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman reports. The deal is pending a physical in January.

Young had been in dicussions with the Orioles in November but was reported to be seeking a two-year deal after hitting .302/.337/.442 line with seven home runs and 30 RBI in 242 at-bats with Baltimore in 2014. The two sides were said to be back in discussions earlier in December and have now come to terms on a deal. Young made more than half of his appearances with the team in the designated hitter role last season, but it's possible he could be used more in the outfield with the team losing multiple outfielders this offseason.


Agent: Outfielder Delmon Young hoping to remain in Baltimore


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

The 29-year-old veteran is hoping to get a multi-year extension with the club, but is still keeping his options open, his agent said.

"Everything has been very positive," said Joel Wolfe of Wasserman Media Group, who met with the Orioles during the Winter Meetings in San Diego. "They value Delmon and realize what he brings to the table, and hopefully it's just a matter of getting it right."

Young hit .302 in 83 games, with 11 doubles, seven home runs and 30 RBI.


Outfielders Aoki, Rasmus, Young on radar for Orioles


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2014) After losing outfielders Nelson Cruz and Nick Markakis in free agency, the Orioles are talking to outfielders Norichika Aoki, Colby Rasmus and Delmon Young, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Duquette: Orioles in talks with Delmon Young


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2014) Orioles executive vice president for baseball operations Dan Duquette said Thursday that the team has continued dialogue with free agent outfielder Delmon Young, masnsports.com reports.

The team had interest in Young in November but wasn't perceived as a perfect fit as the free agent was looking for a two-year deal. The ongoing dialogue could mean that the team would be open to bringing Young back on a two-year deal. It could also mean Young may be willing to settle on a one-year offer. He hit .302/.337/.442 line with seven home runs and 30 RBI in 242 at-bats with Baltimore in 2014.
