Eric Young Jr.: Designated For Assignment

Rotowire.com
Update: Young will be designated for assignment prior to Wednesday's game against the Nationals, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Recommendation: After taking a pretty significant step forward at the plate last season, Young's numbers this year have fallen back to around where they were from 2009-2011. Still, this comes as a bit of a surprise considering Young's level of talent, but the team apparently felt he was expendable following Tyler Colvin's call-up last week. The Rockies can now opt to trade Young, but if they don't, it seems likely he'll draw interest on waivers.
