Dmitri Young is heading to Lakeland to begin a strength and conditioning program. Upon completion of the program he’ll head to AAA Toledo for a rehab assignment.
I’m actually quite surprised by this. I fully expected that Young’s career as a Tiger was over. I expected he’d stay on the DL throughout the season and then the Tigers would decline his option.
I know he was granted time away from the team to deal with personal issues, but to the best of my knowledge there is still an arrest warrant for Young and his being out of state is a violation of his bond.
I’d love to see Dmitri return as the player he once was and help the team. However given the circumstances I just don’t know that it is possible.
