Delmon Young, the Devil Rays' top prospect, has been promoted from Double-A Montgomery to Triple-A Durham and will be in uniform Friday night when Durham plays Rochester in Durham.
"I think he's done a good job of meeting the challenge of Double-A and putting up extremely, extremely good numbers for a young player," said Cam Bonifay, the Rays director of player development and scouting. "I don't know if there are any challenges left for him [at Montgomery]."

A lot of people speculated this would happen now so he could play in the Southern League ASG first. It's a shame he only has a month and a half at most at Durham, it would be fun to see what he could do in that park over a full season.
