Philadelphia Phillies OF Delmon Young (ankle) may not be 100 percent by spring training after undergoing microfracture surgery on his right ankle last November. "We had interest in him offensively for a long time, but the defense means something and he'll have to proven he can play defense enough to be able to play every day out there," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said. "I think he's motivated." Young isn't guaranteed to be the everyday right fielder unless he can prove it in spring training.
