Delmon Young DFA'd by Phillies

Washington, DC (Sports Network) - The Philadelphia Phillies have designated Delmon Young for assignment.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for fellow outfielder Casper Wells, who the Phillies claimed off waivers from the Chicago White Sox on Thursday.

Young, 27, signed a one-year contract with the Phillies over the winter after helping the Detroit Tigers to a World Series appearance. The 2012 ALCS MVP underwent offseason ankle surgery and didn't debut for Philadelphia until late April.

The former No. 1 overall pick batted .261 with eight homers and 31 RBI over 80 games with the Phillies.
