Young Placed on DL
Dmitri Young, who strained his quadriceps in last night's game has been placed on the 15 day disabled list (Jason Beck's blog). Did anyone not see this coming? He was replaced on the roster by Alexis Gomez whose contract was purchased from Toledo. Since a spot was open on the 40 man roster, nobody else had to moved to complete the transaction. My guess is that Gomez will serve primarily as a back-up outfielder and that Marcus Thames and Omar Infante will get most of Young's at bats.
