Young activated, Tosoni to Rochester

Delmon Young was hit by a pitch in his first at-bat yesterday during an extended spring training game. He never made another plate appearance, but played seven innings in the outfield to prove that he has recovered from a strained left oblique muscle.

Young has been activated from the 15-day disabled list, with outfielder Rene Tosoni optioned to Class AAA Rochester to make room for him.

That's about all for now. Tough to get into this, given the challenge No. 3 is facing.
