I was offered Morales for my Delmon Young. I'm actually really high on Young this year, batting behind Prince, however Morales has more proven upside, but will have to work his way back from an injury. What do you think?

I think your lineup is steady enough to take a chance on Morales. Remember, he's batting behind Pujols. As long as he doesn't jump on home plate again, he should be better than Young in batting average and most other peripherals.
I wouldnt've drafted Delmon in the first place. When his name even appears on my board of available OF'ers I had better have my starters picked by then. It's all upside from there. Morales is a great pickup right now.

Young was my last pick in the draft, but I like his upside hitting behind Fielder. He also looked very good last year when he joined the Tigers, and was a major contributor in the playoffs. I think he's a pretty good sleeper pick. But... Morales has proven power when he's on, so I made the trade. I think a proven guy is better than a flyer at this point, even with the injury concern.
