One night after sitting against right-hander Felix Hernandez, Delmon Young is hitting sixth against left-hander Erik Bedard.
Young is in something of a rotation with Denard Span, Carlos Gomez, Michael Cuddyer and Jason Kubel for four starting spots, so while he won't be in the lineup every day, he should still get ample opportunity to play. The left-handed hitting Kubel is on the bench Tuesday.
From the local Star Tribune:
"The belief was that Jason Kubel didn't start Tuesday because tough lefthander Erik Bedard was on the mound for Seattle. Not so.
"As I told Kubel, it isn't a lefthanded thing, it's just a mixture tonight," Gardenhire said. "I wanted Delmon [Young] out there. [Michael] Cuddyer can DH.""
He's going to sit a time or two a week but he is the DH right now.
