Outfielder Young not expected back until May

DUNEDIN, Fla. -- Phillies outfielder Delmon Young is not expected to join the lineup until sometime before May 1.

So who is the third outfielder, if Ben Revere is in center and Domonic Brown is manning a corner spot?

"I'm looking for people that can get hot," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said. "It's kind of who's swinging good and who's hitting the ball."

That means John Mayberry Jr. or Laynce Nix, although the Phillies are searching for outfield help with less than a week to play before Opening Day.
