Dmitri Young to Betty Ford

There are reports circulating that Dmitri Young has checked himself into the Betty Ford Clinic. This is certainly sad and disappointing news. Between the injuries of the last couple years, the domestic violence charge, and this news, Young’s Tiger career has certainly taken a wrong turn. At this point I’d be surprised if we saw him in the Olde English D again.

Young is making $8 million this year. I wonder if the Tigers can recoup any of that due to the nature of this illness, or through insurance.
