Delmon Young suspended 50 games

Postby duckbillgates » Tue May 09, 2006 2:27 pm


The News
International League president Randy Mobley announced Tuesday that Triple-A Durham outfielder Delmon Young has been suspended 50 games without pay for throwing a bat at an umpire on April 26. Young also agreed to perform 50 hours of community service, reported. Although he is allowed to, Young will not appeal the suspension.

Our View
Mobley didn't have much precedent to work off of, and we thought he'd probably aim high with this suspension. This news (and Young's actions) obviously affects the top prospect's timeline for ascending to the majors.

I really don't care. At this point I wouldn't be surprised if Tampa never brings him up. I'm gonna have him on my keeper minors roster until the end of time.

Sounds about right. I thought a 3 months would be better but 2 will do to send a strong message. He has talent but I am not so sure anymore that he is such a clear cut best prospect right now.
