Cross Delmon off Rays' list as he signs with Phillies
Cross Delmon Young off the possibilities to fill the Rays' DH job as he signed Tuesday with the Phillies.
Young, who started his career with the Rays before a Nov. 2007 trade to Minnesota, was relatively cheap, getting a $750,000 salary and a series of roster and incentive bonuses that reportedly could push the total value to $3.25-million.
With Young signing, the Rays free-agent options would seem topped by Luke Scott, who was with them last season though they declined his option. Other possibilities include Dan Johnson, Travis Hafner, Aubrey Huff, Jim Thome and Juan Rivera.
