Bookmark and Share

Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN – The Minnesota Twins announced today that they have acquired left-handed pitcher Cole Nelson and a player to be named later (on or before October 15, 2011) from the Detroit Tigers in exchange for outfielder Delmon Young.

Nelson, who was selected by the Tigers in the 10th round of the 2010 First-Year Player Draft out of Auburn University, made 26 appearances (17 starts) for Single-A Lakeland (Florida State League).  The 6-foot-7, 233-pounder was 5-11, 4.87 ERA (105.1 ip, 57 er) with 50 walks and 87 strikeouts.  He has been assigned to Single-A Ft. Myers.

In 84 games with the Twins this season, Young batted .266 (81-for-305) with 16 doubles, four home runs and 32 rbi.  Since being acquired by the Twins from the Tampa Bay Rays prior to the 2008 season, he appeared in 497 games and batted .287 (530-for-1845) with 106 doubles, seven triples, 47 home runs and 273 rbi.

To replace Young on the 25-man roster, the Twins will recall outfielder Rene Tosoni from Triple-A Rochester.
