Early this morning, Eric Young Jr. tweeted that he had been promoted to the big club from AAA Colorado Springs. The suspected corresponding move would be the transferral of outfielder Brad Hawpe to the 15-day disabled list. Troy Renck has confirmed the likely transaction and the Young is at currently at the ballpark.
Hawpe has been taken out of multiple games this week due to a lingering quadriceps injury. He was removed from yesterday's afternoon game after aggravating the injury running out a groundout. Young is batting just .228 with a .595 OPS this season, but he is 10-for-21 with a home run in his past five games.
