Dmitri Young released by the Tigers

Postby Dannomyte » Wed Sep 06, 2006 8:57 pm

DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Tigers unconditionally released designated hitter Dmitri Young after Wednesday's loss to the Seattle Mariners.

Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said the move was "strictly performance related."

Young was activated from the disabled list July 21 after he left the Tigers on May 22 to undergo treatment for substance abuse at a California rehab center.

He was 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in Wednesday's 5-4 10-inning loss to the Mariners.

"I'm not going to talk," said Young, whose bags were packed for the upcoming series at Minnesota.

Young spent 30 days in the rehabilitation facility and three weeks working out with minor league teams. He concluded his time away from the team by hitting .452 in eight games at Triple-A Toledo.

Young, a switch hitter, was batting .250 with seven home runs and 23 RBIs for the Tigers this season. He hit .271 with 21 homers and 72 RBIs for Detroit last year. ... ichiganmlb

I guess there was only enough room for one of the Young brothers in the majors.
