Phillies outfielder Delmon Young has begun to show signs of life recently by hitting .325 with three home runs, 16 RBI, and an .858 OPS over his last 25 games. When asked today about his hot hitting, he offered this wonderful rationalization to Reuben Frank of CSNPhilly.com.

That’s uh, true. Or something. Wait, is that fireworks I hear or is my brain exploding?

The Yankees announced on Wednesday that the club traded outfielder Jabari Blash to the Angels in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Blash, 28, was acquired by the Yankees from the Padres back in December in the Chase Headley trade. In trading Blash to the Angels, the Yankees were able to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Brandon Drury, the infielder they acquired as part of a three-team trade with the Diamondbacks and Rays on Tuesday.

Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Blash has hit an underwhelming .200/.323/.336 in 279 plate appearances. He will try to play his way into a bench role for the Angels this spring.
