Detroit removed Delmon Young from the 25-man roster and placed him on the restricted list following his arrest Thursday night and now Andy Soltis of the New York Post reports that MLB “has decided to suspend” Young.
Young’s arrest came exactly six years to the day after he was suspended for throwing his bat an umpire while playing at Triple-A for the Rays as a prospect.
No word yet on the length of the suspension, but according to the newspaper an official ruling could come as soon as today. Young, who’s making $6.75 million this season, was released on $5,000 bail and the Tigers have said he’ll undergo alcohol and anger counseling.
