Hmm. Really? In DY, I see a player who has put up bad stats in very limited playing time spending the rest of the time injured, and that's not even taking into account any personal problems he may or may not still be dealing with. There doesn't need to be a rush yet, but he clearly isn't the best option. He's just what we have right now.Dannomyte wrote:OAKLAND, Calif. -- Dmitri Young is scheduled to DH tonight for Class A Lakeland, starting out on a trail that could find him back with the Tigers soon after the All-Star break. While the Tigers don't have a set date for Young's return, he can only stay on a rehab assignment for 20 days, or until July 25.
The plan is for Young to DH tonight and tomorrow for Lakeland, then move to Double-A Erie, where he will play through Monday. Young is expected to play first base, third base and the outfield. Then, after a 2-day All-Star break, Young would join Triple-A Toledo on July 13. He'll stay there as long as the Tigers think he needs at-bats.
The bigger hope is that Young is the left-handed bat the Tigers need. While it's not at all out of the question that they would still trade for a lefty hitter, right now Young is better than any of the choices available on the trade market.

I think the early part of his rehab isn't necessarily about the results, moreso a way for him to get some work in. As noted in the first post, his progression was planned before he ever stepped back on the field. I assume that AAA is where he'll be more closely evaluated.Dannomyte wrote:DY headed to Toledo. Should be in the line-up tonight. Gotta love him being promoted to Triple-A when he couldn't hit Double-A pitching!
