One of Bill Smith's first big moves as Twins general manager was the six-player trade with the Rays that landed Delmon Young. Nearly four years later, none of the players that were dealt in that trade remain with either team:


Delmon Young: After a sometimes promising, oftentimes frustrating Twins career, the former No. 1 overall pick was traded to Detroit on Monday.

Brendan Harris: He struggled, then was demoted after signing a two-year deal last year. Traded to the Orioles, he has spent 2011 at Class AAA and is batting .223 in 114 games.

Jason Pridie: His career as a reserve outfielder never panned out; he has spent this season as a backup with the Mets, batting .235.


Matt Garza: The 2008 ALCS MVP also threw a no-hitter for Tampa Bay last year. But he was traded to the Cubs and is 5-9 this season.

Jason Bartlett: An All-Star shortstop in 2009, he regressed in 2010 and was sent to San Diego in a deal that landed the Rays three relievers for a rebuilt bullpen.

Eduardo Morlan: The 25-year-old has never pitched above Class AA and was in the independent Atlantic League this year before the Braves organization picked him up.
