It was a waiver deal so the Bucs won't have to give up much. They had to clear a 40-man spot so Neal jumped on it.

I read that he has to be put on the 25-man roster because he's out of minor league options.

If that's the case, who gets dropped? Craig Monroe or Luis Cruz? Does Cruz still have options left and, if so, can Young play 2B in a pinch (as he played that position in the Dodgers' minor league system)?

Thats putting alot of pressure on the infield now only having Vazquez that can play all the infield...

Moss can backup 1st base...Too many OFers now

Yahoo! reported that Dave Davidson was designated for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster for Young.
