You may recall an incident from late April that saw former 1st overall pick Delmon Young getting himself arrested in New York on account of allegedly assaulting a man outside of his hotel and uttering some anti-Semitic remarks. Fast forward nearly eight months later and Tony Aiello of CBSNewYork reports via Twitter that Young has plead guilty to aggravated harassment. Aiello also reports that Young must complete ten days of community service and attend a program at the Museum of Tolerance.
You didn’t think Delmon Young would walk, did you? Delmon Young never walks.
The Detroit Tigers have indicated that they have no intention of bringing Young back next season. Young finished 2012 with a .267/.296/.411 triple slash line to go along with 18 home run while serving as the team’s primary DH. It’s fathomable that a team may mistakenly lob considerable dollars at him this offseason on the heels of a strong showing in the postseason where he hit three home runs and finished with a very un-Delmon .313/.365/.542 showing.
