Delmon Damarcus Young (born September 14, 1985 in Montgomery, Alabama) is a Major League Baseball outfielder for the Detroit Tigers . He is the younger brother of former major league outfielder and first baseman Dmitri Young.

Young has a reputation around baseball for his strong and accurate throwing arm in the outfield. Don Zimmer, now a consultant with the Rays, has compared Young's arm to that of Jesse Barfield or Raúl Mondesí. In terms of hitting ability, at 6'3", 205 pounds, he presents an intimidating and strong plate presence, and his potential has often been compared to that of Albert Belle.
