Detroit's Young heads to DL after breaking leg

Postby WebHamster » Wed Apr 07, 2004 8:49 pm

Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Detroit first baseman Dmitri Young was placed on the 15-day disabled list just one day after suffering a broken leg in his team's 7-3 win over Toronto on Tuesday. He is expected to miss up to six weeks.

Young suffered a non-displaced fracture of his right fibula in the first inning. Running to second base, he dropped to the ground attempting to avoid a tag by Toronto second baseman Orlando Hudson.

After being helped from the field, Young had his leg placed in a removable splint.

Last season Young posted a career year, hitting .297 with 29 home runs and 85 RBI.

To take Young's spot on the active roster, Detroit purchased the contract of Andres Torres from Triple-A Toledo.
