Twins/Rays Trade?

Hmmmm. very interesting:

The Twins would acquire outfielder Delmon Young in exchange for right-hander Matt Garza, sources told's Keith Law. The potential swap was first reported by the Minneapolis Star Tribune, which reported the deal could involve as many as six players, with shortstop Jason Bartlett and reliever Juan Rincon going to Tampa Bay in the deal and shortstop Brendan Harris and outfield prospect Jason Pridie coming to Minnesota.

I don't see Young as a center fielder, but how does this effect a trade for Santana? Do the Angels now get a leg up with their extra starting pitchers and minor leaguers? Or will their pursuit of little Manny remove them from the equation?
