Delmon, Pridie traded to Minnesota

The Rays and Twins have consummated the six-player trade involving former Biscuits outfielder Delmon Young and Jason Pridie.

Tampa Bay receives pitcher Matt Garza, starting shortstop Jason Bartlett and minor-league pitcher Eduardo Morlan. Minnesota gets Young, Pridie and shortstop Brendan Harris.

Earlier reports of a potential trade had relief pitcher Juan Rincon headed from Minnesota to Tampa Bay and didn't include Morlan.

Morlan is in line to start 2008 with the Biscuits. He spent most of this year with high-Class A Fort Myers, where he was 4-3 with 18 saves and a 3.15 ERA in 41 appearances. He ended the season with two relief appearances for Class AA New Britain.

Morland, who turns 22 in March, is "one of the top five or 10 relief prospects in baseball," according to Rotoworld.
