I don't see him going back to the minors but hard to say what will happen to his AB once Magglio gets back in the line-up.

I see no reason to even think he'll move out of the lineup for the near future. Magglio or Guillen may have to occasionally DH, but with the Dmitri Young's mostly dissappointing season, I think Shelton has as much chance to play 1B on those days as Dmitri does.

A very distant X-Factor is Carlos Pena who is starting to rediscover his swing in AAA, but I think he only becomes a factor if Shelton or Dmitri have to miss time.

I would think that if Shelton can continue to hit Dmitri becomes trade bait.

No doubt about that, though Dmitri would be a tough loss for the personality of this team not to mention his power from the left-side (well, switch-hitting anyway).

I would hope a trade of Young would bring some left-handed power.

I find it hard to believe Dmitri will be easy to trade with the contract he has. If we do trade him, I'm not holding my breath for getting much useful in return. My guess is that we are already looking for possible trades involving Dmitri. Regardless, I expect this team to find a way to make Curtis Granderson a regular by the end of August. He still has some more development to do, but he has shown enough at AAA to warrant doing some of that developing at the major league level.
