Nice piece from Baseball America on D-Rays prospect Delmon Young. The toughest pitcher he's faced so far? Montreal's Clint Everts,

"The first two times we faced him, it was basically fastball-slider and he just dominated us. He shoved it back in our faces. It only got worse the third time--which was like five days later. He broke out a changeup like I've never seen. It wasn't just a changeup--it was Eric Gagne-like. He had 10 strikeouts that day. We just couldn't figure him out. He just keeps getting better every start."
