Young set for debut ....



Delmon Young is set to make his major-league debut Tuesday night.

Young, the talented but occasionally trouble-making prospect,  is in the Devil Rays' starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the defending World Series champion White Sox, batting eighth and playing rightfield.

Manager Joe Maddon said Young, 20, will play just about every day and will have the chance to work his way up the lineup based on how well he does.

Young said he was excited but not nervous about playing in the majors for the first time. He also said he planned to talk with his new teammates and make it clear to them that he just wanted to fit in and be one of the guys.
